the breeze left footprints across the sand
like a trail of fine lace
it tip-toed over grass dotted dunes
swirled through beach plums
and came to rest in my ears
like a forgotten memory
whispering of stolen, star-lit kisses
and slow dances on a moon-lit floor
murmuring of far-off dreams
and an angel's sigh

the breeze moved on
like an impatient child
to lift and frolic among the clouds
leaving me earthbound
swept up in the footprints of a breeze
though in my heart
I soared too
aloft in crystal skies

Hehehe I have a confession to make, I stole the idea for this poem from a Home Decor magazine! In an article about Eyelet of all things!

Odd where inspiration for poems come from isn't it?
And thanks so much for the replies ya'll, I had hoped I was conveying the image well enough so the reader could FEEL being there along with me

I know what you mean, like on a day when there is a light breeze on the air and you're not taking much notice, when all of a sudden a stronger breeze comes up and affects you directly it seems. It's almost like you are connected to it and it gives a you a lift and you're glad to be alive to take in the freshness of it...My God I'm going on so..great poem by the way....ethome.

X Angel, this was very nice took me away it did....

these lines are my fav...

whispering of stolen, star-lit kisses
and slow dances on a moon-lit floor

they really swept me up in a wishful moment.

Heather~

Know what I loved about this :

'the breeze left footprints across the sand
like a trail of fine lace
it tip-toed over grass dotted dunes
swirled through beach plums
and came to rest in my ears
like a forgotten memory
whispering of stolen, star-lit kisses
and slow dances on a moon-lit floor
murmuring of far-off dreams
and an angel's sigh

the breeze moved on
like an impatient child
to lift and frolic among the clouds
leaving me earthbound
swept up in the footprints of a breeze
though in my heart
I soared too
aloft in crystal skies'


EVERYTHING !!!

*Huglets*
~*Marge*~

~*No matter what I search for ...
let me know when it is LOVE that I find*~ <))><
