From Sea to Stars

From Sea to Stars

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

make believe


On the back of a horse

I rode from sea to stars

From the deep blue of ocean

To the bright red of Mars


I touched with my finger

A slow moving ray

Escaped from the moon

To bring night to the day


I grabbed on to a star

As it shot past the sky

Closed my eyes and wished

For the freedom to fly


They sprouted out slowly

Two wings from my back

My horse friend he giggled

And took off like a flash


I followed him, flying

Doing somersaults and twists

Twirling ‘round stars

And their bright coloured mist


Catch me if you can!

Came the shout of my friend

So I opened my wings

And swooped down on him


We tumbled and tumbled

Until we hit solid ground

We were back on the earth and

My friend was not to be found!


Then I heard a soft panting

And his wet tongue upon my face

I felt his tail merrily wagging

My puppy still wanted to play


It’s almost bedtime Wilbur

We’ll play again soon!

And I made for the house

As the sun turned to moon

Good coupling. Good theme. And though I know it’s nothing to do with the rhyme itself, what the hell, I’ll say it anyway - I love this font! I want to use it in all my poems, too. Don’t know how you go it though.

I did enjoy the tale in the poetry. The imagination of a child need to be allow to grow to no-ends.
"Catch me if you can!
Came the shout of my friend
So I opened my wings
And swooped down on him"
I liked the above lines. The poem alive and wonderful. Thank you Ana for sharing the amazing poetry.
