Under the Shadows of Trees

Under the Shadows of Trees

A Poem by JackValor86

A poem of the cosmos and earth.

If you travel far from the flooding lights
of the big city farm of sleepless nights
You'll find, in a place so dark
In time, from the space you embark
The starry night sky, so full and bright
If only you could fly, you'd be a cosmic kite

Quickly they circle, slowly they seem
to drift through the night, an infinite dream
of planets and stars, the dust on the moon
We'r sailors and stars, with a lust for a tune

Past the moon and the stars
from the mountains to the seas
In the gloom of Mother Mars
I sit under the shadow of trees

I love the contrast, from the bustle of the city to a whole new world (to a dazzling place I never knew. . . sorry, Disney fan) and not only is it about the forest but you depict the sky above as a vast ocean to be explored.
You, my good, sir are talented. While I find it easier to visualize words (than those I live with) it's refreshing to actually have a clear image painted for me.

Well I'm writing a lot of gritty stuff lately, some of it erotic fiction and some of it horror, so I've put my profile to mature. Just know that everything I've written here has been written from the .. more..
