Beach Girl


I Fell Into The Sky


As I awoke this morning, I fell into the sky

The ocean left right after me and gracefully rolled by


The elephants stood on their toes and did a little dance

Pansies grew up ten feet tall and frightened little ants


I hear the mountains packed their bags and moved to Oklahoma

Palm trees put on winter coats and left for Nova Scotia


Birds decided not to fly and ordered Mini Coopers

Clouds became immoveable and fell into a stupor


Rivers ran like two way streets confounding fish and men

Lemons, limes, they all grew sweet, causing kids to grin


Soon I awoke from this strange dream, and sighed a little sigh

Recalled the weird and wondrous as I fell into the sky

    I found myself really enjoying this poem. The prose was simple and clean, and it was easy to follow. The imagery was also very well done; enough to let us see what you're seeing without being overly descriptive, which would be easy to do for a piece like this. It has very good flow, and gives off a sense of whimsy that I enjoyed. It's a bright little piece, and I like it :) (Report) Reply
