No Satisfaction

A flower was offered to me
but I wanted a garden
A tree was offered to me
but I wanted the forest
A raindrop was offered to me
but I wanted the storm
A moonbeam was offered to me
but I wanted the night
A grain of sand was offered to me
but I wanted the beach
Your love was offered to me
but I wanted your soul

Defying Gravity

how do i shed this
cloak of gravity
assume some levity
put on a silly hat
mismatched socks
a red nose
how can i kick off these
shoes of gravity
assume some levity
float to the moon
or the top of a tree
go on a field trip with
a flock of chickadees
be my helium
lift
me

the prompt at Poets United is “gravity”
