My Dream…

white ship with pink flower sails and pink clouds
Image from Discovering Poetry Class at

If my sails were pink flowers,
my white ship would float
upon calm waters
amongst cotton candy clouds,
and all who saw
would gasp in wonder
at the sight.

And friends would follow
in pink petal boats
to leave behind their mundane life
and join me on my journey,

While enemies wave their fonds of hate
in anger,
stuck in the mud of jealousy
on some distant shore.
–Leona J. Atkinson/Free Verse

(This was an image shared in a poetry class titled “Discovering Poetry” that I am currently taking in College.
I am not sure where the image is from or the story behind it, however,  I think it is a beautiful image and it caused me to dream as I examined it.  Since we students were asked to describe the image.  I decided to write this poem as my description which I thought I would share with all of you.  –Leona J. Atkinson )
