A Moment of Imagination

Bursting out of the doors of school, the world swells around me
My brain unlocks and suddenly I can see
Smiling lackadaisically, I let go of every thought
Polynomials, aldehydes and esters, I remember not
Instead, pictures of far-away places and vibrant colors dance through my head
People long gone come back from the dead
Rainbows emerge and I find the pot of gold
Resting at the end, just like we’ve been told
Words slither silently off the pages of books
While jackets float mysteriously off golden hooks
Witches and fairies fly through the air
Laughing and giddy, I have not a care
The ants in a line now march in a band
All buildings disappear, sinking in quicksand
Birds bounce up and down on a white, puffy cloud
The tiny hearts of bees beat ever so loud
Back and forth door handles turn
And for freedom people trapped in snow-globes yearn
The sun defeats the moon, outshining its pale, white glow
The wind blows leaves from trees, hosting a dance show
The sun drops sweetness into apples, turning them red
Sparkling waves do summersaults, one after another, as they move ahead
The earth spinning, all creatures hang on so they won’t fall
And then back to reality I hear myself call
Everything steadies and glowing colors lose their lusts
Homework beckons me- switch off my brain I must
Slowly, defiantly, I resume with my work
But out of the corner of my eye, I see flowers torque…
