The Pearl

The moon was a pearl - a large white brilliant pearl of a moon precious like the one I adored as it shone down on us from the sky. The sky was a sea - a broad expanse of midnight blue as deep as the love we made deep in a night swimming with shimmering myriads of stars. And the stars were fish - beautiful shimmering star-fish as bright as the glow in his eyes - those eyes that gazed into mine deep into the night of the beautiful sky - that broad expanse of midnight blue - the sea into which we gazed so deeply in love as the moon met our gaze - the moon that shone down on me and my love most precious - Oh, night of the large, white brilliant moon - the pearl.

This is fantastic, Andrea - I adore it! I wrote a poem a while ago (To Sail the Sky) which had a similar theme - turning the sky and sea upside-down. When I was little my mom and I would lie on the floor, legs up in a chair to relax, heads tilted back, and imagined we were living in the house upside-down, stepping over the doorways, etc., so I've always viewed the world in "odd" ways, lol. This is just perfect, in my opinion - have to fav! (I'm spending a day on your page sometime soon!). :-)
