A Shaft of Light

I rode a shaft of light to sea
A road of clouds to fantasy
Through lifts imaginations view
Drifted with the winds that blew

And there I found a make believe
Beyond my wildest minds conceive
With azure brooks of choral sighs
And flowers holding butterflies

Pure magic in a humidor
A transience of overawe
Of silver shards of moons good night
Bright angels playing in the light

I palmed hands in sonnets prayer
To keep the vision always there
Within the clouds of fantasy
To always fly my mind to sea

And to this day each time I wile
I always find a Christmas Isle.

====================================


Could the imagery in this be any cooler????


With azure brooks of choral sighs
And flowers holding butterflies

Of silver shards of moons good night
Bright angels playing in the light


Stunning images...

"silver shards of moons good night"(yer so kewl)
and could these lines be any cooler..

Pure magic in a humidor
A transience of overawe

I palmed hands in sonnets prayer
To keep the vision always there



I do so love your poetic mind...
and you just put a whole new spin on "Christmas in July" with this gem of pen.

Beautiful write Stinkylove...
So..does Randy pull the sleigh?

Seymour darling heart ahhhhh I never know if I’m going to get back in the door when I leave if I’m going to get back in. When I eventually do I’m so happy, that I get the chance to float in dreams and golden schemes where dragons play at the break of day and where Seymour calls come with me to the land of dreams over the sea.

As always darling heart superb writing from a master artist, I love it utterly, but of course you know that

Keep a place for me darling man there on the isle of dreamers smile


Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy



Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the earthquake wind and fire

Very beautiful writing, here...Sy...
I love clouds of fantasy....
To me, they often look like mashed potatoes, I guess thats because I think about food a lot.
