Saturday, June 30


You have captured my heart as sweet as love at first sight.

Your imposing stance dwarfed my tiny, admiring heart.

When I touch your walls, I can feel your strength.  

I tried jumping to catch a glimpse of your inner world but you are simply too great for me.

I wanted to look into your soulful eyes but they were gazing up to the heavens.

Reading your mind is almost impossible.  A place where I can see a wired, encompassing world.  

Your doors are inviting and strong.  They serve as your guardians and the windows to your soul.

I have been blessed to be even just standing right next to you. 

You are a national treasure.
