RECIPE FOR A DREAM

Here is a dream for sleep.
Here is a dream to keep.
Will you try?
Will you buy?

Take a thin wedge of the moon
with a tiny, wide-eyed star ...
Whip up a silver spoon ...
in a jade-green samovar.

Moisten with drops of dew
Fold in the smell of heather ...
A soft pink cloud or two ...
With a dash of April weather.

Color with rainbow's end
A petal from a flower ...
Mix together and blend ...
Let stand in the sun for an hour.

Add one ray of fading light
Sprinkle with poppy seed ...
Spread on the crust of night ...
To meet your dearest need.

A dream for sleep
A dream to keep ...
Will you try?
Will you buy?

  5. God this made me wish spring was here Margie!

    You really paint the most beautiful picture with your eloquent words!

    Yesterday was much warmer, and I smelled a hint of spring in the air....much like the smell of rain - I love that. :)

    Hope you're doing great over there! I'm glad you're back writing! I miss your poems!

    Love & hugs!
