Pinocchios This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Stretched out warm on the lawn

That verdant carpet velvety smooth and soft,

Golden sunlight streaming down

Like butter dripping in glistening droplets off an ear of corn-on-the-cob.

A breeze, sharp with sea salt,

Slices through my leafy sunshade,

And little green paratroopers, whirling,

Rain down on me.

I absolutely love this! Amazing imagery, I can picture it clearly! Wish I was in a place like this! I also find it cute that you called the leaves Pinocchios :)
