Cloudy, With a Chance of Daydreams

With the sky as the ocean, and grass as my pillow I dream of adventure, adrift in a sea The clouds in formation, have gathered and billowed As the mast gathers wind, and sails down for me I'm swept to the sky on a wave, wild and free ! There's an elephant swimming!! And a white whale that frolics! And a long caterpillar, that follows to play! But, they're slowly dissolving, I become melancholic as the mast has collapsed, and the whale goes astray While the ship I was sailing, has faded away.

    So many memories of lying on my back on the cool Michigan grass in summer, staring at the sky, interpreting shapes to laze the afternoon away. Thank you Carrie for an awesome write, and the imagery that has brought back my childhood. 7
