I open my eyes and here I am
A place like no other
A palace of glittering gold
On clouds of silver like glistening mirrors
Like a lady in a glittering gown
She is the goddess of the sky
The guardian of the clouds.
A tranquil world, a mysterious place
With blue cerulean water, crystal clear
Running down like a gushing waterfall.
As misty as the Angel Falls
As blue as a Caribbean lagoon
More wonderful than the stars.
An emerald pond
Lavender lilies on apple-green lily pads
Shimmering sky-blue water
Whistling and gurgling like a volcano
Creating small ripples in the calm water.
Dragonflies with stunning silly silver wings
Birds with soft golden feathers
Golden the luminous sun.
And velvety vermilion tails,
Flying and gliding.
