To be silly with-

I would love to swim to the 'Guilamine' in the skin Or dance on a carpet of sheer pleasure I might like an ice-cream cone on the way Topped with pink and golden treasure. I would enjoy a drink made of sparkles That might light up with yellow-red magic My dreary grey-blue life – and then I would anticipate with joy an umbrella Made of silk and maidenhair fern To be silly with –

Hi Liz.I think it's good for us to give way 'to be silly with'life sometimes.So much sombre and at times gloomy dealings invade our thoughts and everyday actions.We have to focus on being grown-ups we forget about the child 'within'.We need to be playful, act the fool, laugh, be childlike- not childish-even if just for a while.I think as poets we have the ability as well as opportunity to do this Thanks for the reminder.Love this.A favourite for me.Also glad you liked my Dog.Love June(S)

Oh, I'd like to join you in this magical journey, Liz. We could all use something like this to brighten our "dreary" days. And I'm quite silly anyway. Make my cone chocolate please. Thanks for your kind words, Carolyn

Hi Liz. Thanks for your kind comment. I thought that it would not be seen by anybody that I knew. Bang goes all my street cred. You might write a lot but when you do they are little gems. The artist in you comes out in this piece, Colour, colour everywhere in those words. Eamon
