inside the mind are many things waiting to be revealed.




A Carousel Parade

Queens and Kings
 majestic things
dancing across the sky
daring loops with skirts
in hoops showing
pantaloons on thighs.
Breasts at rest in mounds
in gowns hanging in folds.
What a daring sight in all its might
as the moon is gilded in gold.

Stars in crowns shining down
a kaleidoscope display.
 Dippers scoop cotton soup
a cloud swirling parade.
Knights at night prancing right
in the ballroom milky way.
What wonders there are from afar
 in a gala of sapphire blues
as dreamers sleep while dancers keep
a fantasy spring of hues.
