An alluring trace
Of lightly misted Alvaron
Unfolding gently
Blossoming with silver sighs.

The sensuous fragrance
Of lotus fruit
Wafts upon silken melody
Offering intoxicated dreams.

The keeper of the skies
Holds within his foggy soul
The great expanse
Of my ancient reverie.

He throws the gate open
At my slightest desire
To simply fall
Into a flight of fancy.

My softly glimmering isle
Unrolls before me
Blanketed in golden wishes
And sprayed with faerie breath.

A rainbow sight in disarray
Brushed with long treaded paths
And lightly patterned
With spicy memories.

Tanned arms of life
Entwined with emerald leaves
Reach upward to caress
The pale puffs of cloud.

Sunlight heavily rains
Upon Alvaron's rolling green
Offering a moment of solace
And perhaps eternal refuge.




 *Krista Knutson*

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Alwye,

What a beautiful fantasy world in the making. At first when I saw the title, I thought "perhaps this is related to Avalon?"... it sure is. Avalon is the supposed isle where King Arthur of the Arthurian legends was taken by the Lady of the Lake as he was dying. Good one, there!    (looks like you like mythology just as much as I do, perhaps??)

Beautiful poem as always, my friend.  I too also immediately thought "Avalon" upon seeing this poem, though I don't know as much as Sir Artur Hawkwing (That's such a great series of books!).  You've described even that magical isle incredibly.  Another amazing piece to add to your name, excellent my friend.

Yes, I was actually thinking of Avalon when I wrote this, but seeing how I don't know much about the stories, I didn't want to be innacurate in my portrayal.  So, I changed the name a bit and created my own little fantasy isle.  Thank you all for your kindness, it is much appreciated.
