Piccadilly Dreaming Away From Shore




  

Piccadilly Dreaming Away From Shore 





Ice cream,

slow time,

colors are vivid.

Music makes the feet move,

times are good,

and people are in love with life.



They all watch mundane things

with great gusto-



clouds:

high and wispy,

slender vapor,

a sky full of ships

and waves



flowers:

full of kaleidoscopic, 

vibrant color,

swirling soft petals,

boat propellors above the sea



Brown rice:

nutty flavored part of a seafarer’s diet,

chewy on the tongue

with that periodic crunch,

a dollop of honey atop



hats:

perched on heads as pirate scarves,

hat bands and feather accessorizing,

brims overhanging

the beautiful faces of the romantics



tea:

strongly brewed,

poured into patterned teacups,

quixotic ideas drunk in

not unlike a sailor’s rum



Idealists with

big thoughts,

breaking chains,

piccadilly dreamers floating upon the new ark.
