For A Moment

When I open my eyes
I see no mountain tops towering over the horizon
Or valleys formed by the crystal blue water
I see dirt roads that are cracked up
Pavement that is rough from many years of use

I see no blue jays chirping in the wind
Or woodpeckers thumping against the tree bark
I see dogs running from children
Cats lying on the ground of parking lots

When I close my eyes
The sound of the cars zooming by
The foul scent of the poison in our air
The shoves of people trying to get to work
It all vanishes

And for a moment
There is silence
No yelling or shouting
Just the chill of the cool breeze floating by me
The singing of the enchanting birds
Just for a moment

The author's comments:
I have been writing since I was 10 but, I never had enough courage to post anything until now. I will greatly appreciate that if you have found something in my writing that needs improvement you won't hesitate to tell me. Also, punctuation is not my strong point, so if can help me with that I will be so happy. Thank You! :D
