here. sun.
there. water.
kids run around me,
ignoring my sudden urge
to feel the grass
tickle my skin.

I would have stayed
all day.
I would have watched
sun fall off
island's edge.

I would have seen
the Milky Way fade
into existence,
guessed which constellations
actually appear in autumn,
and which planets twinkle
and which stars shine.
I'm no astronomer.

But Joe jumped on my chest
with an innocent laugh,
and pulled me off my ground bed.
We played on the roof,
and looked for salamanders instead.

One week after the photo or picture is posted I will pick one offering to put beneath the image. This is a way of celebrating exceptional creativity. Any and all posts are available for your creative mind to make an offering at any time (even ones where a writing has been placed on the front page like this one). If you are new here and want to offer to every image here, feel free. We are writers, WRITE! If this is your exceptional writing posted here on the Front Page Pictures, Poetry & Prose invites you to include the Exceptional Writing Award Button on your blog.

Lying on my back
poplars
startling in their seeming nearness
to the sky

Oh Lazy Day
I want to be
A brilliant bird
Up in a tree

Or maybe just
A piece of grass
Joyful as the seasons pass

Better yet
A Cloud in time
Drifting thoughts
Out from my mind

Oh Lazy Day
As perfect be
To rest with you
Beneath this tree

Blue sky above,
Prickly grass below.
Falling into the blue,
Surrounded by puffy white clouds.
Falling and drifting,
Drifting and falling
Mama! Look!
Thud.

But I still remember drifting among the clouds.

I lay in the green
Surrounded by blue
My arms curled behind
my head

White puffy cotton
Floats above me
And it seems the world moves
instead

The soft blades of grass
Gently tickle my skin
Like a sweet
caress

I am taken away
As I lay so still
Being freed from everyday
stress

Well, now I see what Mum meant when she said my feet were growing too fast - they're bigger than those buildings over there. Wow!
