Like all lovers and dreamers and sad people, I too am a poet.

Stars, hide your fires,
Let light not see
Your deep and dark desires

An ode to dreams

October 12, 2018

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Amidst vanilla flavoured days
Of lemonade bright
On cotton candy skies
Let's draw our silhouettes
Messily etched
Yet beautifully imperfect
Wild like dandelions
Yet sweetly lily
Let's paint our dreams
In shining glitter
And send them to outer space
In paper airplanes
Let's dream for a forever
Like the day is infinite
And the night is untrue

    I love how you use creative descriptions and pair up words that normally don't go together. It makes the piece unique, helps it to stand out, and is super-creative. These lines are my favorites:
    "Like the day is infinite
    And the night is untrue"

    Whoa, I absolutely love this! The lines "Let's draw our silhouettes Messily etched Yet beautifully imperfect" and "send them to outer space in paper airplanes" are such perfect choices for this piece and they really give a sense of happiness and hope to it. :D

    I love this! The adjectives you use make this piece pop right off the page, short but stunning.
