I was looking at the sky today;
the clouds didn't say much
the embarrassed sun
hid behind the clouds.
My friends were all flying today
but they floated away.
Underneath this lantern 
that grass grew in patterns,
the clouds were no help
they didn't give me an answer.
Maybe it was a shadow of sorts
or the lawn had cancer.
Ever have one of those days
when you can't trust your senses?
It's like the world told a secret
but to you it wasn't mentioned.

    I like the last two lines especially. And, the idea that one can't trust one's senses. I believe most writers/poets have many of these moments....what do you think?
