of fairy dust and fireflies








i long for the first rays of silvery light
their touch the bearer of calm
that stills the storm winds with silent caress
and cools the earth with its balm

of fairy dust, fireflies, whispering breeze
refreshes the soul, rousing hope
with tender appeal the impulses stir
cool fingers that let you elope

into the blue of the midnight sun
with mischievous winking eyes
spurring you on down the long road that leads
to the oceanside where we rise

to meet the desires born in our hearts
our cherished enchanted dream
and frolic in gurgling waves that roll
forever, or so it may seem…

  11. Excellent poem!
    Downing are magic, (or were they called dusk).
    At that hour nature feel like being in an enchanted castle or with peter pan.
    I guess morning are real and sometimes they come with real joy. While dark nights are more attractive, maybe due to being forbidden, due to the mysterious of the dark, but you can never believe them, even less the happiness they provide.
    Love you shadow

  24. The sea "breathes" with the sea-breeze, just like we. If the waves ever end their gurgling, we also end ours...

    Dear Shadow, Poet Mistress of the blog world, your art is "prefection" day in and day out.

    (that was an error, but decided to leave it in the comment!!!)
    Love, and PEACE!
