Happy Valentine’s Day everyone I hope you are blessed today and always. This is an old piece and one of my favorites. May it bring you joy … Peace and Love, Carla Dawn
The christened White Thorn stands reflected in still waters,
beside does nibbling grass at the edge of the tree line,
sheltered in the Oak shaded early morning of a Ginko verde summer,
as pebbles spell out whispered confessions only Spring can cause to blush so ripely,
to a listenable lake filled with schools of mystic Blue furcatus story tellers,
circling the carnival lights the Moon has been planting in their muddy beds,
where ringlets of nymphs are devising dragonfly daydreams.
I cradle singing Luna moths in my cupped hands by Night,
bringing them to my ear to hear the Universe’s memory through their wormholes,
the skies crying, the stars making fireworks of themselves to charm their spell.
The Beauty Bush is heavy with a butterfly brunch as Day approaches,
the memory of last season’s snow snakes lie still, hidden in my watercolor curtains,
tutoring the sunshine on how to paint a rainbow with Love’s shy smile,
the Wisteria babble a meandering bridge for Heaven to descend Earthward and upon.
My Noonsie teakettle sings of Dryads grafting roots to clouds Sylphs seed with baby tears slumber,
Come drift, sailing along the forgotten shore of an Autumn wonderland,
where flowers last into always in fairy tale hearts,
ever hanging on to the Last Rose of Summer.
For just one more day,
one more kiss,
one more moment of missing you,
as if only time matters.
