Easy as it Looks?

A moon walk takes some special shoes
They wouldn’t work on earth
Risk losing my vintage turquoise jewelry?
It was given me at birth

I stepped into a puddle and thought I’m just a little wet
Boy did I get scolded when they saw my every step
If I stare too long at sun rays my eyes can lose all sight
What would I do with tangerine dreams in darkness with no light?

A fire can be a comfort and present a safe and snuggly home
But you better know and trust the builder of the hearthstone
Do you know there is a simple answer to every question that we ask?
But few are easy peasy when you accept the task

Linking to Paint Chip Poetry with Linda Kruschke. She says,

“And trust me, this will be a challenge. I almost feel like I should apologize for the poem the random number generator landed on. It’s titled Eggs Rated from page 149. You’re on your own to figure out what to do with this one.
The paint chip words and phrases you have to work with are easy peasy, puddle, vintage turquoise, moon walk, hearthstone, sun rays, and tangerine dream. May that first phrase characterize your poetry writing for this prompt. Use how ever many of the words and phrases work for you.”

I LOVE SHEL SILVERSTEIN! Such fun poems! I have ye to write as silly as him, but it is still one of my goals. My poems always have a serious tone weaved through them.
