Random Poem:

Flaccid Moods of a Poet

A melody of heaven and hell
I spoke
to the strands of time
I played like a guitar
the morning breezes
around my tired body, wove magically
lengths and lengths of flaccid moods
swaying gently
between lush green hills
lazy sun cradled asleep
to my melodies of heaven and hell
Vibrant white moon
in the dark blue sky
sang lullibies long forgotten
to humans and animals alike
under the vibrant moon I dreamed.
Birds sang serene scenes
as the wind blew lightly
rustling leaves and trees alike,
reluctant to rise, the sun drooped lazily
and my alarm clock snapped me back to reality.
