This is a Poem my 10 year old daughter wrote.

I sat on the velvet sea of grass
rolling in great waves of the ocean
being lightly sprinkled by dew-droppy fronds
while drinking the fresh sweet pine scent
and a pure morning glory dew
carried by a playful wind
who toys with my hair
tossing it back and forth
a tangle of wild horses
then I looked to the sky
and let my mind go
letting it soar like a hawk
and touch the clouds
who am I?
then plummeting
to my brain
to reality
and once more I looked up
up to the sky
but chained my thoughts
to my head
so they didn't
float away
like a bunch of balloons
drifting off
to some mysterious place
then I  thought to myself
what is up there?

and felt like a loose thread

then thought again
what is up there
in the great huge dark universe
who stretches her fingertips to the
edge of eternity
then looks at herself
at earth, mars, Jupiter and all the planets
all the moons
and stars soaring in the sky
next to feisty comets
in millions of Galaxy's
looked at it all
and laughed at herself?
and I looked up
farther then the sky
past the clouds 
and finally felt
a sensation like none other
for I looked at
the world
but that
is only
an old memory
a picture
with edges
curled and yellow
in some ancient
album of thoughts
stored in a box
in the attic
of my mind
but someday
I'll rummage through
those boxes 
and find that old memory
of sitting on the grass
and wondering
what heaven
is like.

Give her some love.  She would LOVE to read your comments!
