Mag Challenge 288
I floated last night
Through a riverine dream
On a wide, amazonian
In my barge of a bed
Like an African Queen
Carried down by the current
That slid slowly between
Of rustling green.
‘Neath a Cheshire cat smile of a moon
Deep in the delta
Between midnight and morning
Art exhibition of
Recumbent and strange
Of opaline oranges
Bowed along silently
By kimonoed curators
Through shadowy halls
With rice paper walls
The cat, of course,
Slept through it all.

What fun! For some reason, it puts me in mind of The Owl and the Pussycat — which it should, I suppose, since… well, you get it.
I love the clocks hung on the tree, and the African Queen reference. And of course the cat slept through it all. The cats alays do.
Your Floating World was, in a word, terrific.
Of course the cat slept through it all.. or was awake, far from your magnificent dreamscape.
Very sweet take on the prompt, especially the last line
Nice! Incidentally, great minds think alike because I used the Cheshire cat reference as well. Fun! Nice write and lovely descriptive language. 🙂
LOL – you know you could rap this. 😉
Oh, how clever you are! Those last lines are pure delight!
Love the African Queen reference…
