tree branches glisten in the dappled sunlight
as streamers sway in the lazy breeze
bright ribbons in colors trailing over our heads
dancing in the wind with glorious ease
dream-like, serene, and ever so peaceful
i look at you and wonder at what i see
a handsome face to match a wondrous heart
how could one so beautiful love someone like me?
and now the wind begins to sing the next song
as the leaves above us resume its familiar dance
it’s a song only you and i will ever know
about a dream, a new beginning, another chance.

Beautiful poem, Morrighansmuse! It made me think of classical Chinese poetry. Can’t wait to read more of your poems.
Thank you. This was written based on a dream I had that was so vivid that I had to write it down – the trees, the streamers, and the feeling that I was loved (even if it was in the dream) 🙂
So wonderful to know that a dream you had inspired you to write this poem.
