If The World is a Book, I Want to Read Every Page.

Let me memorize each dotted "i"
of moonlights freckled face
Trace the silver ripples
of a seashores wrinkled page

Count the auburn stanzas 'tween
the depths of trembling trees
Ride upon the vessel
of a sun-kissed simile.

Open sky-stripped windows
to the sigh of cursive clouds
Shuffle through the metaphors
Awaking through the ground

Slant the sails of poetry
toward continents of sea
Deep into the jungles where
the verses lace the trees.

Catch the winds of free verse
Or the open waves of rhyme
Sift through ocean ballads
where the sunset greets the tide.

Study drops of scripture
as it clicks against the street
Sleep between the pages
of departed poetry.
Someone should've told me I'd be needing my snorkel

Anyways, haven't really gotten the chance to write for the past few days, so sorry for the sloppish-ness XD

I absolutely adore what you've done here. The continuous between the world and a book is wonderful. You've taken a concept of ordinary means and taken it to extraordinary levels. I honestly don't have anything negative to comment on. The stanzas easily flow into each other. It feels like you planned this from the very beginning, since the first line of the poem. This is truly inspirational. I think many poets would agree with me. After this, I think I'll take a peek at the rest of your work. If this poem is anything to go off of, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. :)
