Poems from The Sky Inside My Mind, v.1, (2017)

 

What Is Time?

What is time?
Is it blue

like the sky,
or is it pink

like a lollipop?
Does it look

like a star?
Does it move around like a cat?

Does it hop like a bunny,
or does it roar

like a tiger that got
something stuck in his paw?

Ode To My Necklace

My dad
gave me this necklace.
When I take it off, it is a
shining star.
When I put it on, it is
like a spider
crawling.
When I walk, it is
like a butterfly
coming out of its
cocoon.

Inside My Thumbprint

It is like a rollercoaster going
through the deep blue sea,
seeing fish
that look green with a key made
of seaweed
and a door made of
coral.
When I open the door, I see
a parallel universe.

Christopher Blair


 

Fish

A fish
in the
water
waves flowing
and the
sun
glaring on

Dream Deferred

What happens
to a dream deferred?

Will it
wave to you
like a friend?

Does it
open like
a door?

Does it
float like
a hot-
air balloon?

Does it
blow things
away
like a fan?

Does it
creep like
a mouse?

Does it
run away?
