Surreal

I walk on cloud, stumbling into pools of moonlight
And lakes of midnight, stars’ eyes
Creating an Argus in the sky —
Watch me in wonder as I wander

To the banks of our galactic river —
“A land flowing with milk and honey.”


I decided to post this and share it with Real Toads’s “Try Everything” prompt, since I rarely write something this “creatively” formatted. This is basically a stream-of-consciousness poem, written a few days ago, and I’m not quite sure where it came from. What does it mean to you?

  1. I love it – and you’ve included the word ‘maladroitly’! The opening lines are atmospheric and dreamy, with ‘stars’ eyes / Creating an Argus in the sky’ and the alliteration and play on words in ‘Watch me in wonder as I wander’.
