We dance under a dome of azure,
emerald grass beneath our feet.
Raindrops create a steady rhythm
and like freckles dot our cheeks.
Sheltered by our linen white castles
that we crafted from cotton sheets,
paper crowns grace our heads
and we are made kings and queens.
Saturated by shimmering lights
and set aglow by inner peace,
we use mason jars to capture
the fleeting gold sun beams.
Cardboard ships send us to space
flying effortlessly without wings-
with a child’s imagination,
discover awe-inspiring things.
