One Naani, coming up! http://friendlyfairytales.com/2014/03/26/birthday-parties/
Thank you for your submission!
I will have a look 🙂
I’m struggling with this one! So far I have;
when done right
can move and inspire
the world over
My soul is worn
and tucked out of sight
It’s a fragile thing
and easily hurt.
I’ll keep working on it! I really enjoy taking part.
