Midnight Flight

Posted February 2, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

I bathe in the luminous starlight

Cleansing my soul of the dried tears of yesterday

My fears and pains are washed clear away

Into the deep night.

Pure moonlight paints my wings

The deep black of slumber forgotten

As I soar ever higher, in joyous flight besotten

Into this tranquil world devoid of earthly things.

I flew up real high.
I saw houses so small they looked like dirt.
I saw clouds above me.

We had to go see the animals of Africa
across the ocean. The elephants came
and they made lots of good noise.
Then the tigers and bears came.

I could see the trees so small
that they looked like broccoli.
I saw the gorillas come out
and then I saw a great big house,
and it was as tall as a tree. It was so high
I could almost see the windows
from up in the sky.
