# # # In My Mind's Eye Poem by Sonya Florentino


I take a breath
I take a step
And look as far as I can see
Then close my weary jaded eyes
To dream (of you and me)

I take a breath
Another step
Upon this crumbling patch of earth
But in my mind
I have heaven-bound wings

    I like this one Sonya, rythmic and simple, the opening verse makes me start to smile. But the second verse falters, then 'crumbling'...breaks down in sadness.
    Can you roll it back...pick up the positive thread? (Report) Reply

    I love the simple language in this. The heaven-bound wings is a colorful image too.
