TOUCHING THE SKY

Climbing a tree

A young explorer
Climbed a tree
To get a better view
Mom and Dad
Weren’t watching
There wasn’t
Much to do

Sought answers
To questions
There was so
Much to know
Where did birds
Go to sleep?
Why, were grownups
So slow?

He climbed
Still higher
To find more
Reasons why
Did the sun
Still shine
On cloudy days?
Could you
Really touch
The sky?

LET IT ALL OUT

****************

Hero?

Diva?

Orator?

Matador?

Playwright?

Troubadour?

Conquistador?

Strike a pose

Tremble in fear

Curse your fate

Avoid the future

Pull out your hair

Cry out in anguish

Run like the wind

Make snow angels

Reveal what’s inside

Escape from the past

Draw down the blinds

Grovel in filth and disgust

Give imagination full reign

Seize what’s rightfully yours

Exact revenge on your enemies

Rivers of spontaneous laughter

Inner child meets your outer child

What would you do if no one was looking?
