World In My Mind


Delilah Rose

Hayley LeRoy, Poetry Reporter


To the sound of the color of the sky,

The clouds rolling in,

So it begins.

With the sunrise

Trailing skyfire across the heavens

Until it reaches the horizon,

Then the sunset

As the skyfire burns to ashes

And the embers

Drift into a darkening night

And become stars

Swirling in a velvet sky…


Now do you understand why

I prefer the world within my mind?
