Step through the doorway
Look at how the universe awaits me –
Stars shooting, burning
Galaxies consuming, merging.
White suit. Witness the makeup of the cosmos.
Step. Fall with that star…
Fall onto the clouds
Look at the sky holding me up –
Rain dripping, showering
Clouds cushioning, cotton candy
On pointe. Arabesque.
Tutu. Pirouette on top of the world.
Leap. Drop through the blue…
Drop onto smooth scales
Look at how his body slices through the air –
Wings leathery, beating
Eyes intelligent, old.
Cloak. I’m an explorer of the skies.
Let go. Dive straight…
Dive into the clear waiter
Look at the bubbles keeping me buoyant –
Legs kicking, propelling
Arms pushing, slicing
Stroke. I own the water.
Turn. Breathe in deeply…
Breathe in the endless expanse
Look at the ever rolling hills –
Grass rustling, swaying
Flowers reaching, spilling.
Brush. I paint the world in colour.
Detail. Drift down…
Drift between the soft sheets
Look at the pillow where my head settles –
Imagination expanding, limitless
Wishes overflowing, warming
Childhood dreams. The future beckons me.
Future. Grow up…
I grow up and it’s a mad world.
