Once I took a holiday within my mind. I saw spectacular vistas and lovely hidden places as I walked across the clouds.
I continued on amid the cerulean, cotton candy billows and retraced ginger steps of trepidation.
I tiptoed the dark corridor where colorful memories of our first encounter lay sleeping.
Careful not to wake them from their peaceful slumber I stood quietly for a moment in reverent remembrance.
I then moved on toward a field of stargazer lilies that represented the many adventures we shared.
As I glanced skyward, a heavenly body cast its glow upon a trellis bed of blushing red morning glories and my mind bent to pluck that memory.
As I moved on with my prize held close to my heart I strolled along a tangerine rock candy path through a forest of days gone by, yet there was no melancholy, only splendid bliss.
As I clutched these bliss filled memories, into a sandy clearing I roamed.
A Tahitian breeze whispered like a warm baby's breath implored me to hold these feelings forever.
A seashell's joyful tears wept beaches of rare pearls that now traverse the landscape of my mind creating the perfect place to get away and dream of better things.
