Dandelion Castle  


Dandelion Castle
I am a beanstalk child--
do let me
climb
you,
so wildly up and up
into the
sweet
air.

Let me too, sway with the wind,
bend with the grass,
and speak with the clouds.

Tufts of white that drift--
turn gently
now
blue.
Fly away and dissipate
and I shall
fly
too.

Away now, to a quiet Elysium
of wispy cobweb beings--
shape shifting in the sun.

Such gauzy dreams,
how can I 
reach
you?
If I open my eyes again
will you be
still
there?

A unicorn's long, white beard 
and a smiling duck remind me
of a hippopotamus cloud

I once knew
