Imagination (Short Story Slam Week 23)


September rain pours down on everything,
The iron pot screams on the stove,
Grandma halts her jokes,
with a girl next to her, listening,
While grandma adds some freshly made noddles in,
the girl draws some clouds, an orchard,
and a rainbow that glitter in her head,
Fire burns like
a ballerina's dancing feet,
Silence, bitterish tears,
"time to eat,"
Says grandma,
But the girl keeps the train of thoughts in herself,
After she activates her imagery Heaven with a few friends,
She smiles, joining her grandma,
with a small bowl of noodle soup ...
