Azure

A Poem

By Alex M.

Skin pierced by sun rays

That danced along my squinted eyes

I tried to trace the lining of the skies

 

You turned to me and said

Let’s go for a swim

You made me float and I said

“I feel like a cloud”

 

So you spin me around and around

And study my orbit

Like an astronomer

Blue sheets of water rolls over me

Like gossamer

 

And all the while you look down

And smile

At your cloudy space projectile
