Galaxy Walk

She stepped through galaxies
stringing together
stars and dusts
a necklace of time
and space

she left behind
axles of normalcy
hoping towards a place
of dreams
flights of fancy
vaguely remembering
days of cookies
and lace

but she woke up
from warm showers
of rainfall
musky mists
of earth
and desire
spread through
midnight air

a million years
from tomorrow,
she will learn
the dance
between stars, space
and land
shedding another layer
of thorns and tears
finding center
between a slow cooked
stack
of peanut butter
and jelly sandwich

  1. Love this.

    I want to dance between the earth and the stars too - only in my dreams.

  2. I liked the way the words were strung together for this. Very lyrical.

  3. Oh, this is so lovely! Beautiful job, dear. I love your choice of words; they're very celestial but mentions of things like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich give it ties to earth. :)

  4. You have so much talent. I love flights of fancy. Some times they are all that can make our hum drum lives worth living!

  5. I think many will find that they can identify with your poem... as they have probably dreamt of flying into space and love to reach for the stars...or maybe they felt such elation at one point in their lives that it felt like dancing amongst the stars...this is an absolutely beautiful piece.... I love the peanut butter and jelly sandwich as well... made it as if despite our dreams we still have to wake up and face reality...

  6. Lovely. I picture a young woman standing at the sink eating a PB&J and dreaming of what might be.

  8. Beautifully composed, sparkling, boundless fantasy--yet well grounded by cookies, lace and pb&j. Earthly beings in search of the divine. Don't we all desire a galaxy walk? ;)
