I step onto the next page of my journey and trip, Expecting to fall and bruise my lip, When instead a strong pair of arms catch me And suddenly I feel warmth as our eyes meet. We laugh and my heart skips a beat, In a matter of seconds, I feel complete. Never have I felt such ease And peace Within my mind and heart. I realize that I never want to be apart From you as you have become my everything For whom I would do anything.
I sway more Fairy skirt swirling Around me Dancing with every step I feel fluid Shifting and bending With every stride My pixie side finds me On an overcast day Rain collecting upon skin Skirt tickling my sides And I find myself dancing Jumping along puddles Having the water whirl Twist into a dancing partner Clinging to me And the edges of my Fairy skirt As I walk away
I wear autumn Upon my shoulders Some say I hold fire My paws dark as coal And when I run I am the fog Early morning mist Disappearing into the trees I laugh haunting the shadows To be mistaken for ghosts That is autumn--those spirits And they run their fingers Through my coat
Your smile reminds me Of mornings with blue skies And I grip my cup tighter Pulling it close, as if the steam Dancing from the edges Had your form And I wanted to gather you closer When mornings are overcast With storms teasing the clouds I could almost ignore the rumble As the sky thunders And you tell me, I remind you Of your favorite color Blue
Decided to do poems involving favorites... this was my favorite color blue
The universe puts her headphones on And plays her favorite track The raindrops in the meadow burst And soak the earth And with her feet up on the world She smiles from ear to ear And plays it back
What songs does the universe listen to? Is there a more beautiful sound than the rain falling in the secluded meadow. Truthfully, I don't know. But I do love the sound of these words as they roll off the tongue. YUPP!
