Dressed in white
I walked barefoot
on the surface of the moon
When upon me came
a carriage and horses
in the month of June
The sound of hoofbeats
on gravel evoked a memory
of a long-forgotten tune
and in the distance
I saw the dish running
away with the spoon

Thank you so much 😊
Nice last two lines bringing in the nursery rhyme.
Thank you very much Frank 🙂
Excellent to tie yourself back to the surreal nursery rhyme
Thanks Bjorn.I enjoyed the prompt. Reminded me of nonsense poems I loved as a child.
I liked your rhyming scheme…and who wouldn’t like horses or the moon?
Thanks Lynn! Yes exactly 🙂💕
I love “I walked barefoot on the surface of the moon.” Excellent Christine!
Thanks Linda. I loved your prompt! 🥰
Christine, between the poetry and this picture, you created somethign totally special. 💖
Thanks Beckie! I really appreciate it ❤️
I had the poem written and luckily found the pic on Pixabay. She wasn’t walking on the moon but she wore white and there was a horse! ☺️👍
Some pictures we find are so cool. I love what a photographer can do artistically. 📸
Yes, it’s amazing
I’ve always loved any poetry that includes reference to nursery rhymes…and you’ve done it surrealistically! 🙂
Thanks Lillian 🙂 Our dreams are surreal and nonsensical when picturing them. It’s not until we break them down that we can translate them. I think the dish running away with the spoon from another nursery rhyme, was that I ate cereal before going to bed! 🤣
You’re not going to believe this, I was listening to this interesting song, when I began reading your intriguing poem, Christine…. what a coincidence… wow factor… anyhow here’s the song…
Now that is surreal! Synchronicity. ❤️ Thanks for the Youtube … I enjoyed it 🙂
this is really beautiful. Love the ending!
Thank you Sarah 🙂💕
Your poem has a wistful sound, Christine, created by the ‘oo’ rhymes. I love the surreal thought of the dish running away with the spoon!
Thanks Kim! 🙂 I loved Linda prompt tonight.
I enjoyed the dish running away with the spoon.
Yes, that was a borrowed line 🙂💕 Thanks Reena
Love the whimsy of your poem and it’s rhyme.
Thanks Sadje 🙂
