Memories #poetry #short prose

Meadows where trees sleep, and rivers stretch like cats.
Fairies dance tarantella in the air.
Your purple lips reflect the shadows of the women you will love.
Your eyes as thirsty as the surface of the moon.
Sandy dunes.

      1. Your welcome! Your verse inspired it and it’s meant to invoke a fairy in the guise of fire flies. Here is the rewrite:

        Before my eyes
        She dances upon the wind flashing
        Brightly all night

      2. Oh, how beautiful . I am really grateful to you for the rewrite and for your kind words.

    1. Thank you so much, Ash. I hope this made your day an ounce more beautiful. (an ounce of gold πŸ˜‰ )

  1. It’s amazing that such a short work can be so transporting. I never thought of the moon as thirsty, but now I can’t believe I never made that connection. Wonderful display of imagination, G!

    1. Hey there David,
      Always grateful to you for the praise and for your comments.
      “I never thought of the moon as thirsty.” Funny, because I’ve been thinking of that since I was a kid πŸ™‚
      Your writings are so inspirational, David. I’ve never thought of underwater roses. You did. So there!

      3. I saw your most recent post in the reader. I’ll be there soon. I left a comment on your previous post. It may be my VPN. However, it may not be a bad idea to contact WP. I have to do the same since it was my comment. We”ll sort it out πŸ™‚

      1. I am glad everything is ok. As for reviews… On one of my published poems one guy took the time to write a long epistle and told the entire world how bad my poem was. Actually it was not even a critique of the poem it was more of a personal attack πŸ™‚ Lol…
        Take care Victoria. Good luck with everything!
