Hello there ATS world. I usually write dark poems, but I tried my hand at something new. As I sit here I have Shel Silverstein's book next to me
called "where the sidewalk ends"... Love it! It's great and full of fun and whacky poems. The pictures are awesomely fun as well. I also have sitting
here "falling up" by Silverstein as well.
Well.. I was reading a few poems out of each book.. And was just sitting and thinking and out these two poems came...
"A dog meows, a cat makes a bark
Sounds you hear in the dead of dark
The wind laughs, while the trees scream
Is this real or one messed up dream?
The bees don't sting though...they kiss whispers
They are all full of thought, ya silly mister
The girl in the dress skips right along
To the winds laughs and howling song
Don't go too far, I can't see too well
Go back to sleep now and wake up feeling swell."
"The sun is purple, the grass is blue
I walked outside and lost my shoe
My precious boy takes my hand
Walking around in soft moon sand
Flowers turn their heads, take a look
Reach up high to catch that book
This land is different to the eyes
As you look up to find scarlet skies
Let us frolic little one,have fun with life
I'll try to take away all worries and any strife"
Thank you for reading. And enjoy your day

Edit-if you have never read any of Shel Silverstein poems.. I suggest ya try. He is a great writer in my eyes. I love the book the giving tree by him
as well. Great stuff.
