In My Magic Box

In my magic box

there is a lime and gold strawberry valley
with gumdrops that fall from the skies when it rains

The birds in my valley are aqua and violet
when my birds fly, they make a range of ice cream clouds
like soft marshmallows

When an aeroplane goes by
it flashes amazing colours like a disco ball
and lights up the sky

My dark red, black and orange vines are like fire
I cuddle up in my furry webs
I eat special mango leaves

When it is dawn, the egg cracks
and splashes the speedy sun out like flaming water
that rises through the blow-holes

The colours of my fish are baby blue
they dart through and they catch lightning scales
like a flashing rainbow

My valley in my magic box.

Hi Teresa-Mae,
This is a beautiful poem. I especially love your description of the dawn. I have never heard anyone describe the dawn quite like this. It is a magic time of day and you have brought back that magic with your words.
