Where I Go When I Sleep

Where I Go When I Sleep

When I close my eyes I travel to the land where the lion roams and roars the night away. Where monkey’s travel from limb to limb and frequently beat their chests to show the mighty spirit.


A place where I ride an elephant across the land and wave

At the hippos covered in mud to cool and protect their skin.


Where I can shake my khaki hips to the jungle beat

In my bare feet, a place where I can grunt instead of speak.

A place where pink dolphins frolic and squeak.


A place where even I can afford to eat.

That’s where I go when I sleep.

Very well done, I really like the way you show and not tell where it is you go when you sleep. This was delightful Tanya. I think this would be a great idea for a challenge. The "shake my khaki hips to the jungle beat" was perfect. I love this!
