Foggy Mountains at Sunrise by pzero42 Foggy Mountains at Sunrise :iconpzero42:pzero42 1 0
Be Home Before the Sun Sets
Wakey, wakey, rise and shine.
Clean socks scampering down,
curious green eyes alive and searching.
The world is a very small place.
But today it gets a bit bigger, a whole new school
and a sunny day of new experiences.
Put on the new backpack, blue fabric and wax wings.
Burnt toast and sugary cereal, and some for the road,
for a growing boy who needs his protein.
So much curiosity for such a small frame.
The yellow of the school bus blends in invisibly,
swallowed by the brilliant white sun of the new day.
Hurry up, it's nearly time to go.
You can't stay here forever, you know, and besides
it's a wonderful day outside.
Tele says tomorrow is cloudy.
New things become routine, calm down, become normal,
accepting the compromise of the ol' buttermilk sky.
Out the door with you, time to go.
Remember to be nice, to pay attention, and as always
be home before the sun sets.

I walk through crowds who never look up,
drab and caffeinated and desensitized to everything.
I used to go to a brown building and sit in a sea of gray squares
with shallow walls and drawers full of dull pencils.
But I'm different now, I know.
They took me up one night as I slept, into their spaceship.
With bug eyes and soft voices they showed me the stars
then dropped me off before sunrise on my little pale blue dot.
Now I run through the fast-moving forest of people,
shaking their roots, pulling at sunglasses and hats,
imploring that just for a moment they look up and see
that their jobs and their towers of concrete
and their lines of cars and their mountains of paper
are just specks on the face of a pebble.
But today is a cloudy day and there are no spaceships around,
so they shuffle past and go back to their boxes,
glancing at watches and cell phones and avoiding eye contact.
But I never stop remembering the little green men
and their wondrous saucer that made my eyes go wide.
