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

One night during
the death of summer and the
birth of autumn,
we drove to the emptiest place we
could find.
After sitting hip-to-hip in the backseat
I moved my feet so they could keep a beat
on the soft grass that would soon undergo
defeat from the annual depletion.
Midnight swarmed around me as I
trudged up the sides of those
dark green hills
and when I was finally at the top
it was so easy to stop worrying.
With my palms to the skies,
the moon illumined my eyes
and I said my good-byes
to the last gusts of the summer air.
I watched the fair
of the universe above me,
stars on rides and the moon pulling tides,
the planets confiding in me
to tell the world about their
words and rings.

I really like this - the rhyme scheme is enthraling, as are the words. I love to write about the night sky...

would you maybe look at my poems? 'Dream Poem' an others?
