Free Verse: Can We Pretend for a While

Can we pretend for a while

That the lamppost above is the moon

And the little bugs fireflies that light up the night?

Can we imagine this dull road

Is a worn dirt path leading to adventure

That we will be the first to conquer?

As the darkness falls over a gray sky,

Let us talk beneath a galaxy full of stars,

And as the voices of others echo toward us,

Let us whisper to each other under the song of the breeze. 

If your mind is on other things,

Let us break away from this world of small sorrows,

And lose ourselves in the vastness of the mountains

In the roaring of the seas;

And before the sand runs out

Let’s just pretend for a while

That we don’t have to leave…
