Twilight Walks

moon

A sliver of pearl traverses the night

Bumping into scintillating stars

Sleep eludes and thoughts soar up

Wrapping dreams like a blanket

.

To lie back on the curve of the moon

Leisurely fish for errant asteroids

Loop a rope around a comet and

Stumble upon an outrageous galaxy

.

Hike back to earth on a meteor shower

Fall into a luxuriant canopy of grass

Rinse feet in the cold bustling stream

Dig toes into the sifting oozing sand

.

A golden lace of sunshine threading

Patchwork quilts of carnations and daisies

Silver drops perch atop the glossy leaves

Feathers of dandelions narrate faraway tales

.

Stories familiar of concrete and clocks

Of life that forgets the beauty of dawn

Don’t want to leave this secret meadow

And wake up to begin living yet again.


Deadlines, meetings and doctor visits have made me want to run away. Dreaming is my one and only outlet. I needed Open Link Night to pick up the pen and write again.

  1. This reminded me (I think deliberately?) of the poster I had as a child on my bedroom wall – the Pierrot sitting and dreaming on the crescent moon. Gorgeous imagery and a very dreamy quality to it!

  2. Dream on, write on, right on; terrific poetics, fun read–we should never be too busy to scribble words, to formulate dreams. I like the line /feathers of dandelions narrate faraway tales/.

  3. I love the whole flight through the heavens, “loop a rope around a comet”…feels so free and easy, just like how we wish all our dreams could be. This was a delight!
