Lili in the sky with cotton puffs (a poem)

I’m not so keen on this entry, but I’m getting sleepy already, so this is it…

She floats against an aura of deep blue
a smile on her face
hand raised in a wave

(How did she recognize me from there?)

I turn away briefly
to rinse my face
before the soap gets in my eyes

I look again—
she has floated away
No doubt she’s seen someone else

and turned to follow
a smile on her face
hand raised in a wave…
