    I took the helter-skelter up to the sky

    Through a carpet of Pastry’d blueberry pie

    From the ground - rain of silver fell

    Lone cow walked past around its neck a bell

    Featherless bird flew beneath my feet

    Spanish galleons glided past in fleet

    Continuing to rise passing the skies

    Hearing the buzz of buttercup flies

    Hitting a deep dark brown lake

    Rising up through the chocolate flake

    Looking back down afraid to drown

    In this dark-chocolate’d lake gown

    Rose for air passed a Welsh Cob mare

    All but could was glide past and stare

    Unable to stop this journey of mine

    Flying up through the passage of time

    Somewhere distant the sound of flute

    Minstrels jammed upon their lute

    A juggler juggled a rabbit’s head

    Winking at me still not dead

    In my disgust juggler upon it fed.

    Close by sound of wedding bells

    Intoxicating maple syrup smells

    Where would this journey ever end?

    Mind of mine open for me to send

    Expanded universe gone around the bend

    Back to earth in sudden cloudburst

    Waking up with a thirst

    Lying back down on the floor

    Deciding that I want a whole lot more

    Once again before I die

    I want to ride that helter-skelter to the sky

    So Alice in Wonderland! So fanciful and full of imagination. The images you conjured up were fantastic! Your choices of words call up such vivid images. Just Wonderful! Write on, and invite me to read sooner next time!
