Taste the Atmosphere

Just for fun!

Taste the Atmosphere

The sky revolves around the earth as I lie on gossamer turf Just sipping the clouds.
They taste like my dreams and a sunflower gleam.
With a sparrow-splash here and there, all blended as I smile and stare.
Spectacular is everywhere.

If you would open your mouth and your eyes
To taste the indigo sky
You’d fall overboard with your daydreams on the rise.
So top-heavy because they go to your head.
Your veins will rush with sunset flush instead.
And you’d never go back to bed.

Sometimes the sky gets tangled in the branches as they dare to tease The wind who always wins. And the stars get stuck in a leafy hug.
Some of the dust brushes off. It floats down and makes me cough.
But it tastes like burning lemon drops.

If you would open your mouth and your eyes
To taste the indigo sky
You’d fall overboard with your daydreams on the rise.
So top-heavy because they go to your head.
Your veins will rush with sunset flush instead.
And you’d never go back to bed.

When you’ve tasted the atmosphere everything else begins to smear into something sublime. A glorious water slide.
Just let yourself glide.

If you would open your mouth and your eyes
To taste the indigo sky
You’d fall overboard with your daydreams on the rise.
So top-heavy because they go to your head.
Your veins will rush with sunset flush instead.
And you’d never go back to bed.
