The city dweller

by mandaceehb

The sky emits a soft morning glow

As the first rays of dawn span across the clouds

In a dreamy pale blue, rose-tinted at the edges

It fans out to a blushing dawn


The tiny pricks of light glimmer weakly

As fairy lights twinkle and wave

A cheery good morning sight from a distance


The Ferris wheel spins lazily in circles

Round and round and round

It is the epitome of my emotions

As my head spins around and around

Never finding solid ground


I am driving past a small town

And I wind down my window

To the relaxing country sights and sounds

And maybe I’m dreaming

But my heart could take root in this place now

And sing in tune

With the melody of the birds

Not cars


I find peace

As the city noise drowns
