Momentary Escape

I sailed into a sky-blue Inlet,
disembarked on an island cloud
towed along at a rapid rate
by an enormous alligator
whose probosis dissolved
into a French poodle pulling me
at similar speed from church steeple
to church steeple until I was dumped
off the island falling from one
unreality into my usual one.

The photograph is amazing, it has a real threatening quality to it.
The poem suits the mood perfectly.

Lovely light! Playful clouds inviting a good sail into daydreaming.
