Are there fish in the sky?

*In some sort of way, this is what started it everything @.@ I mean, my actual style,
along with other poems that I wrote before; enjoy, and thanks for reading the product of
my voluntary pushes into schizophrenia C=*

Are there fish in the sky?
My ideas asked once
While they drank in the sink
Falling over my shoulders
Such questions produce fatigue

As I inhaled fresh transparence
With no blue still around
Thought about bubbles
Being turned into clouds
No need of green smoke
To answer this doubt

The music draws unreality
Pictures, footsteps of a child
Play with my mind
Nail your hands on it and open
Just to dig up a flash

They suddenly pop out
Breaking free
With the light
Such a surprise

Yet my ideas dance
As if they knew
What used to be breathed
Is now a liquid brick
A dense one, indeed

The question expires
Fades with a sneeze
As I come back here
Perhaps an all day dream

Effects of the morning mist
Although…I look up
Just to perceive a shadow
Swimming upstream
Towards the sun

[Why not?]

    Your imagination soars and make one stop to think. I smiled while reading this and felt your gentle step from reality here. Reads like a dream.

    You seem to glide in some space in some undefineable space between confusion, enlightenment, and wonder...I like the structureless quality of the content...the shifting shape method of your poetry is a alluring style I myself am gravitated towards...

    When you wake in the morning at sea, watching the fish swim is one of the most serene things I can recall. Imagining them swimming into the sky is not difficult when the sea and sky meet on the horizon. Beautiful poem, Cesar! Love, Carolyn

    Yes, they are called Pices. Loved your original take on this perplexing notion. Queer things happen everyday if we stop long enough to notice them. Great imagery and diction-AA

    Cool idea. I wouldn't be discouraged if what you find in your mind doesn't fit the traditional bill nature and physics force on us. The mind works very differently, as you already know. -Yoni
