The Sun’s in My Eyes

The sun’s in my eyes, I fear I’ll go blind.
There’s ice in the attic, and I’m of a mind
To look for a world that’s calmer than calm,
Where even the view from the bathroom is balm;
No astral projections, no blood on the floor,
Sweet music is all that I’m looking for.
How fluid is life, how fleeting, yet sweet!
Now that I’m done with this rhyming, I’m beat!

    It is difficult to align
    all that you write with a rhyme.
    So close your eyes
    don’t look at the skies
    put up your feet
    until we first meet.

  2. Stunning rhymes in this one!💞

  3. Not only rhymes, but also meter.. maybe the best calmness is found in chants of a song like this

  4. That world “calmer than calm” – in the forest, on the shore, anywhere where humans are not. Smiles.

      Oh, yes! The absence of humans certainly calms things down!

      • The very best thing is to be sitting in the forest and a wild animal (for me this was an Echidna) who came walking up to me, sniffed to check me out and then nodded and contiunued on his way. Common name for him is Spiny Anteater so it is possible that I was a bit too big to swallow!

  5. Oh this was fun and I am with you…a world calmer than calm would be such a balm!

  6. The last line made me chuckle, perhaps because I almost saw you drop the metaphorical pen and exhale.

  7. This is fab! These little rhyming gems are a lot harder to pull off – well – than might appear at first pass … and you’ve hit this one, right out of the ball park. Love it!

  8. rhyming can be a tiring exercise!!

  9. Ah, I love the chirpy tone and the rhymes. This is for the ages: “How fluid is life, how fleeting, yet sweet!”

  10. I want to ask you about the blood on the floor…but I’m worried it might reveal to much for me to handle (LOL!). Love how you ended it!

  11. Yes, I’ll take some of that sweet music too!

  12. I/m all about the calm life too
