Circus In The Sky

A solo swim
small waves twist awry
Only I and the cotton sky

They peek out to see
From under white sheets
Just me and this little sea

They come out to perform
a magnificent storm
of shapes and species galore

Whiskers and tails
Feathers and scales
Wildly running aloft

The jungles and seas
All come to be
As one in the sunny serene

Adieu, adieu
Away they fly
As I smile 
goodbye.

    This is really good imagism. No matter what your intended imagery was, I can personally interpret the 'animal' clouds through your detailed words. Chris.

    Brash, imaginative and engaging! I really enjoyed reading this one; it pulls so much imagery to my mind with great efficiency. The pacing is solid throughout, and the rhyme scheme is subtly engaging. Great write, Alyssa, and congrats on the feature this week! -John

    In regards to my blog, I was basically defending the women of our nation. I have no doubt about Palin's credibility, but we all know that her being a female plays a significant role in this upcoming election. In regards to Obama, let's be nice. There's enough negativity and "mud-slinging" from both parties. That's why I'm voting Independent. People have often asked me if I'm Muslim because of my last name. (Toran) No, I'm Methodist. The name Toran is Anglo-Saxon. Have a nice day. Milt
