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

Cloud sailboats
Float past on the sea of sky
While wishes wave on green stalks
In skies of shivering grass
Huddled for sunshine sharing
In the empty bed chill of the lonely wind
Stoic trunks stand with arms outstretched
Forever watching the changing horizon
For that long-lost childhood memory
Earth murmuring in restless sleep
Beneath the itchy dreams that dance on soil skin
With their play flames and stick-and-stone wars
Whirling the nights away with dizzying blurs of life
And the cloud sailboats sail on

WOW! Beautiful writer. You have a true gift. I love your analogies. I feel like you have done more with the trees and given them more life or at least a more unique personfication. Still, everything else is so different and insightful! Loved it. 5 stars. Beautiful, beautiful. Would you please comment on my work titled Mind's Eye, I am the Mother of War, and Contemplative Beaches?
