Round 9

Round 8 Winning poem by 🕸 Salloween 🕸

Take me to the place of my dreams.

Take me to the place of my dreams.

Have me running by your side,
my legs as wild and scatty as
a pink flamingo.

Have me swimming in the sea.
Diving like a sea lion
to the bottom of the ocean,
snorkeling with my siblings,
laughing as my jelly shoes
water the seaweed.

Have us walking on the sand,
never letting go,
never forgetting this moment
that I already miss so much -
never wanting to wake up.

Have me shop 'til I drop,
buying seaside bargains that
never last the journey home.
Souvenirs I couldn't save -
just like my legs.

Have me waltzing and jiving
like a carousel,
in the perfect high-heeled shoes
I yearn for.
I wish I had never taken them off.

Could you take me there?

Round 9 Prompt:

Have fun and Write On!

Thanks for Your Generosity!
