Velvet Roads

Here is like no other
place
the sky is made of denim
and it's a suede dirt that you take your steps upon
Fields of calico under a sun of ribbons
An evening sky with button stars
Silken butterflies floating
on the soft breeze
And no matter where you go,
velvet roads lead you
home

I really like this poem.  The imagery is great, and you created a whimsical world in so little words.  Nice work :)
