There's moon glow inside me.
I'm dancing on air.
Where are my friends?
Will you join me there?
In My Daily Post today, Ben Huberman included a quote from Allen Ginsberg, "Follow your inner moonlight, don't hide the madness."
I loved the idea of having moonlight inside my body and so I wrote this poem. But then I got to thinking about other things that make me happy, that symbolize happiness to me.
There's cotton candy inside me.
I'm feeling so sweet.
to each friend I meet.
There's bubbles inside me.
I'm feeling so light.
My feet, they are dancing.
I feel their delight.
There's a circus inside me.
I feel like the show.
There are lions and tigers
to dance where I go.
OK. So now it is your turn. What are some things that make you happy? Chocolate, swimming, sunshine, parties? How would it make you feel?
So try the format and see what you come up with:
There's a _____________________________ inside me.
I feel like____________________________________.
