Hold the expanse of blue skies,
white clouds and green trees
between your knees as you travel
far and wide on a sturdy phoenix
to exotic places you never saw before.
Hold on to your hat as the wind
whistles between the leaves.
Follow the sun as all the flowers sing.
You’re the first to know you’re there
when you’re greeted with the kiss
of a smiling white angel who opens
a huge door with your name on it.
Yup, you are not going back my friend.
