Is Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds

Diamonds fill the sky

Just as they pierce her skin and become rubies

But she will never grace their beauty with her gaze

Leaves become the gradient colors of the sunset

But she does not see them

And takes interest in the thickness of the tree branches instead

Buildings tower hundreds of feet above her head

As tributes to the accomplishments of mankind

But as she gazes at them from the ground

She pictures herself on their roofs

And then imagines that she is flying

Tears nourish the earth

But she cannot see them

As she is dreaming 

A dream too wonderful to awake from
