A Painted Dream - Poem by Gwen Maffia

A cloud floats patiently
through the secret sky
where silver stars of heaven awake

As the moon wills serenity
the silent sea shifts
beneath uncertain wind
beyond quiescent sand

A painted dream is safe
for its shadow hides in the shade
as forbidden memories unfold
longing for rescue
warning lost spirit

A cloud floats patiently
through the secret sky
where the honey-soaked sun ignites desire
defends the dream
returns enchantment

And as peace lights life
the dream decorates darkness
