Let me linger here a while
a lakeside of dreams to savour,
as glimpsing misty mantle an elusive secret,
complicated...flowing as memories wash over me,
I want to float under Summer rain,
feel the trickle of those pearl globules
dissolve beneath my skin, watch those
wispy clouds weave their way then burst forth;
where fears and madness are left far behind.
Last night heavenly bodies gazed down,
emerging...a silent orchestra of planets
on a backdrop of twilight...that advance
into darkness; astonishing me by appearing...
only to be camouflaged by infinity,
then with early morning chill reflecting in milky ripples,
lapping my imagination with their meanderings,
I listened for the gentle smack of water licking rocks,
as fleeting echoes awaken the dawn.
