Soul Serenity

A field of grass
converts into a bed of distress
when I glance at the infinite sky
The clouds sailing like
white ships in the ocean
of the heavens
guided by the blow of the universe
I snap a photo of this beauty
with my eyes and I shut them tight
The image is a seed and
my mind is the soil
In the future, when you want
to start a fire again, I will
close my eyes and stare at the sky
My skin will burn and I will melt
My ashes dissipate into the atmosphere
carried by the wind
but my soul will evaporate
into the promised land
with guidance from the Sun

    Nice tone and imagery...I can almost "feel" your poem and sense its message. I like the title, too, it almost kind of rolls off the tongue like water.
