Lilac Wine

The Beautiful Dream Butterfly

Past the silvery resplendent moon
Through the silken curtain
Tumbled gently the blissful breeze
Like the falling tendril of hair across the lovers face
And with her alights the beautiful dream butterfly

With delightful wings of gossamer
She flutters and flies
Dances and glides
Casting her divine silhouette
Across his mysterious face
As he sits with his head in his books
He glances up into the air

He puts out his hand gently softly like the whisper
Of the secret love
But she swoops away
He watches mesmerised
Absorbing like a candle the beautiful dream butterfly
As her presence illuminates his darkness with an aurora of stars
He sighs as he closes his eyes and when he opens them
She is gone
The beautiful dream butterfly

    Amazingly beautiful is this...It is sweet and I have to think that in the writing is the sweetness of the beautiful flowering tree that is called a Lilac....How appropriate than that this sweetness comes from your poem...This makes me feel good and cozy and just up, up, up. What more could one ask for? ~~~~marci.xo (Report) Reply

    Like so many of your writes Lilac, this one moves, wonderful writing!

    As her presence illuminates his darkness with an aurora of stars
    He sighs as he closes his eyes and when he opens them
    She is gone........WOW!
