Hope and Dreams

Apr 25, 2017

Beams of light pierce the canopy of leaves

Dappling the forest floor with golden dots

A green ship arabesques through the air

Pirouetting and twirling around the spotlights

A dancer sails in and out of the light

Yawing and listing through the golden light

The birds sway and rustle

While the trees chirp and sing

Whispered secrets

I long to know

But my body betrays me

And I am content to

Sit beneath the shade of an old oak tree

With many a story of its own to tell

And hear them in my dreams.
