Sugar and spice

‘Come to me in my dreams’

I implored the sky

who was hesitant

‘It must be long

It must be hard

It must be far

It must be uneasy

You and I are sugar and spice!’

He hid beneath hollow words

Then coz he could not ignore

his own calling

he looked for answers.

He reached out to the clouds

who fluffed a loud yes

He looked at the moon

who turned a sharper sheen

He searched for the stars

who twinkled on brighter smiles

He landed light in the corner

of the eye and travelled to the lips

where a smile greeted him

and he decided to stay.

‘I kinda lost the way’, he added meekly.
