An Ode

We sat in the evenings, relishing tea,
Did I read you or did you read me?

And then,
On the mountains I flew,
Amidst the clouds I grew,
In the valleys I slept,
By the rivers I wept.

In beautiful kingdoms I stayed,
With unicorns, dinosaurs and goblins I played,
Oh! What treasures and riches did I see?
You created an unimaginable world for me.

Lost I was in your words,
As the king drew out their swords,
You saw me wonder, you saw me gape,
Not an emotion did you escape.

I slept with your dreams in my eyes,
As unfinished conquest of where the truth lies,
And I woke up with you in my hand,
And where will you take me, oh book, today,
In which land?

Welcome back... and the following is an ode to your return... I borrow liberally from your thought process (a few posts back)

And then,
On the mountains I farted,
Amidst the clouds I shat,
In the valleys I peed,
By the rivers I cleaned.

And with this gross verse - I salute you... and welcome you back... Keep it abstract...

And yes - this was well written - I am gonna curl up with a book now... Cheers...

welcome back indeed. long you had stayed from these 'wordy' waters ;)

delightful verse! it felt like one of those from long before, the descriptive style, like straight out of my english text book.
*sigh i miss such poems.

Soulful if not touching.
Beautiful verse with rich kinaesthetic expressions. Do I need to say more?
