Doze Away

For days
dreaming
delusional
left
in poppy fields
that stretch across my mind
thoughts lost
in a haze
golden pollen floats
over head falling
eyes stinging
this the only reason
there are tears
to wipe away
breath taken
over rolling hills
vast spansion of green
spilling far and wide

around me
liquid pools
at my ankles
form
salt water streams
for sea monkeys

swim off my back
bound
comical little urchins
buffoons
become court jesters
distract one from the complexities
weighs heavy
holding
not much to ask
and for no more
for now at least

Look
before me
and not behind
hence
forward
through the pollen
in poppy fields
laden thick
allow
I must
if you may
day dreamer
orb spider
spin a trap
stitch your web
in tall grasses
catch
escaping
thoughts
keep
or they will wonder
away
off somewhere
beneath sapling trees
seeking shade
doze away
by summers day
perhaps
maybe not
listen
bleating
in the distance
lost sheep
leap over
counting on
sweet dreams
lids shut tight
shutter light
from disturbing
head nodding
dozing off
wake me not
alas
good night

    lids shut tight shutter light from disturbing head nodding. This whole poem is full of lines like this but this one stood out to be the most i like the play on words and the rhyme and time you got going on. It definetely is a imaginative journey that one could take a few times and it will still never get old. Nice poem man!
