The Sky Admirer

Sometimes I wish
that I could find
an empty land
where I could stand
pure
in the desert dust,
swim on a glass lake.
I could be
a serene swan
or a lily,
the sky my admirer.

But one lone lily
hears no laughter,
a swan
in a lake without ripples
feels no touch
and the sky does not admire me
I admire the sky.

Still, sometimes I wish
that I could find
an empty land
that I could fill,
where sweet stars fall
and noble deeds grow
and songs sing each to each
and home is the heart.



In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

You give us the sky every time you post a poem, Martie. *S* (and I'm pretty sure that cloud just winked that the sky is a Martie admirer, too. *G*)

Somewhere - over the rainbow perhaps?
Let's both look - whoever gets there first - Throw a line out (or directions)
(I'm a rare male - I ask for directions)
It sounds a most lovely place

Nicely done here Martie!!! I loved the glass lake part. A great read!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

The lily is one of my favorite flowers. A surly serene poem.
