The poem "May my heart always be open to little..." by e.e. cummings inspired me to do this piece. Here's the full poem...
"May my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old
May my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it's sunday may I be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young
And may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more than truly
there's never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile."
To me, the meaning is so lovely...to always keep your heart open to the simple things in life, to love yourself and to never grow so old that you can't enjoy the simple beauty of everyday living.
