The Fifty Cent Tour

what may flowers bring?

bed headed
dandelion
sunshine freckles
spill out

from 
hole-in-the-bucket 
cereal bowl
daydreams

tripping on
shoelaces 
winding
gloriously

green eyed 
and untied
jungle vines
tangled up

and tugging
fists full 
of nobody's home 
knock knock jokes

giggled 
to a 
monkey
playing

matchbook 
love songs
on a tinker toy 
piano

close your eyes
and sing along
unbelievably 
off key 
 
into the
stracciatella 
cirrus sky
let it go

kick out all
the tent pegs
and
let it flow

  8. Rene, the key in this is all the fun that's had with you, and reminding them how much they will miss you. Such a cataclysm of images, I really loved this. First time at your blog, thanks to dverse, and so glad I found you! Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore
