Enchanted Wonderland.

I'm a little bit weary.
Feeling kinda fuzzy
need to rest my
bloodshot, bleary eyes.
When i go into my
deep slumber
i dream of an
Enchanted Wonderland.

In my dream i'm
strolling along a
chocolate block path
surrounded by
licorice twist trees.
A carpet of fairy
floss lawn.
Bushes of swirling
rainbow lollipops
on a stick.
Giant pock-marked
gobstopper rocks.
Pint-sized pearly
stones spread
all around.

I raise my head
toward the skies
and spot to my
delight and bliss
a egg yoke sun
shining through
marshmallow clouds.
Hordes of chattering
purple baby dragons
gliding across
blueberry skies.
Hanging faintly
on the horizon a
tinged and elegant
banana moon
smiling at me.

At the end of the
chocolate block path
i gaze in wonder at
the gingerbread
house before me.
Up the cobbled jelly
bean path i stroll,
peek through the open
window and behold
gingerbread dwarves.
A fairy godmother with
delicate icing sugar wings.
A wizard grasping a
pretzel wand.
Children playing
games with glee
i think this a place
i wanna be for all
lifes eternity.

Hi Windsmoke,
It certainly does sound like a place to stay forever.
A lovely read, and well written.

River said...

I'd want to stay there too. Chocolate block paths, licorice twist trees, egg yolk suns and banana moons....did you by any chance watch Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory last week?

And anyplace with dragons has always got my vote.

Dave King said...

There's a helluvalot to be said for the child in the man. Excellent.

Beach Bum said...

Would the adult version have tequila and bikini-clad ladies?

Great writing as always.

Joanne said...

Light, airy, nice.

Ygraine said...

A truly delightful fantasy tale!
When I was a child I certainly would have stayed there forever - but I somehow don't think my teeth would have thanked me!!

Lovely ... but you couldn't stay there too long ... you'd be the size of a house.

G' Day MAGS & JOANNE: Thanks for saying so its much appreciated :-).

G' Day RIVER: Nope, i wrote this one well before last week :-).

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: Dragons are definitely misunderstood creatures :-).

G' Day DAVE: Yep, i let the inner child run wild on this one :-).

G' Day BEACH: If there was an adult version it wouldn't be suitable to post here because it would be XXX-Rated :-).

G' Day YGRAINE: Teeth can be real party poopers sometimes :-).

G' Day JANE: Yep, the temptation would get the better of me and my sweet tooth :-).

This definitely needs bright colourful illustrations and some hard covers around it - 10% of the takings to you, of course.
Great stuff.

Annmarie Pipa said...

I would like to be there!!
my daughter said people who dream are smart!!

Windsmoke. said...

G' Day FRUIT: I'll settle for a vivid imagination :-).

G' Day ANNMARIE: Your daughter is very wise indeed :-).
