"What a drag it was to be limited by reality."


As grasshoppers pounce,
As bees buzz with affection,
Birds serenade to the swaying trees
And the trees dance in the wind.

As the sun’s eyes grow heavy,
Shadows creep up fields
And swallow the world
To reveal a mysterious face uncovered.

Cicadas shriek into the open night;
Coyotes sing to the moon
As stars twinkle their wishes
In the starry, passionate sky.

The mysterious, pale face –
Put to bed by nature’s Sonatinas –
Listens to the world…
Until Apollo awakens the sun of beauty.

Sonatina: a musical composition. The chirps and tweets and wooshes you hear outside are nature's sonatinas - the background compositions outside put to play on the big stage of the world.

I know! And I'm like it's too hard for me to be simple when I write why can't you understand that! lol

Greeaaaaat poem :) You describe nature's beauty in such a vivid, beautful way. Also, I learned a new word! :D The second stanza is my favorite, hands down. "As the sun's eyes grow heavy, / Shadows creep up in fields / And swallow the world /  To reveal a mysterious face uncovered." It gives me chills!!! Great imagery and writing overall ;) keep it up!
