Oh Beloved Daydreams 

Oh beloved daydreams 

reside in dreamy skies.

Sparkling they’re inspiring,

filling our hearts with light.

.

Oh beloved daydreams 

colouring clouds with scope.

Skittering in rainbows,

their myriads of hope.

.

Oh beloved daydreams 

skedaddle merrily.

Flying in creation

arousing reveries.

.

Oh beloved daydreams 

in our minds we’re always free,

to express our whimsies.

Elope in fantasies.

When No One Is Looking 

When no one is looking the

shadows come to life. Wispy

souls cavorting in moonlight.

Cadaverous dancers sway

.

under the incandescent 

shine, of heavens ignited

by stars. The skeletal walk

in twilight. Free spirits of

.

the night, tripping through space and 

time. Apparitions sing a

melancholic dirge of grave

wistful sighs. Wishing they could 

.

recapitulate life and 

the rapid cadence of mortal

hearts. The ethereal dreams

of long forgotten souls.

Iris

Lashes fall from heavens,

tears cascading from skies.

Cloudy brows of sorrow,

are overcasting eyes.

.

Oculus of torment,

reflect a soul that’s lost.

Radiating mizzle,

raining their faith is quashed.

.

Iris lives in rainbows,

catching teardrops in light.

Lining mists with silver,

making the darkness bright.

.

Weary hearts enlightened,

so retinas can shine.

Iris is a goddess,

her colours are divine.

Oh Velvet Starry Night

Oh velvet starry night

custodian of dreams,

glittering with hope and

enlightening lunar beams.

.
Chaperoning the souls 

lost in the inky skies,

Illuminating shadows

the cosmos harmonised

.
shimmering in silence.

Your aura is a light,

it’s moonstruck with wishes

when skies are ebonised.

.
Spirits gaze with wonder 

in twilight reverie.

Captives of the moonlights 

spellbound serenity.
