THEME: UN RÊVE D’AMOUR (A DREAM OF LOVE)
The winning poem published in the Enchanted Conversation Magazine, February 2018 edition.
It is the exquisite enchantment of finding love in the most unlikely of place.
Sometimes its presence whispered by the leaves that stand on sturdy trees on a vast sheer bed of green, so green that it gives the tired eye the refreshing look it so deserves.
The sunlight that catches the tiny speck of glint in her eye makes sure that it also gives it a surreal look.
She embraces its dignity with warm stunning stares, the contours of which indulge in shining love.
She sits high on the hammock tied to a tree
And as she swings sideways singing to the birds that keep her company
Her words are carried far by the light gentle breeze
Her voice that magnify clarity taking the half hidden deer standing between the bushes by surprise and looking up in awe and possibly saying that it is a call from the Goddess of Songs.
The blue of the hills in the distant somewhere collide with drifting clouds that swiftly passes it by
And the wistfulness of the valleys that lay below in a shrouded mist
Hear the sound of an angel somewhere far between them
They echo in resonance in a sweet nostalgic reverence
This Goddess of Song speaks to man and beast alike
Even nature stands in testimony to her coveted embrace
Just as the butterflies and the bees feed on the nectar of their love
The flowers that bloom in prominence discover their radiance
As the sun disappears blending into those hills another time
The song of Goddess becomes a distant song
The spectacular display of a myriad of colors that stream through the sky await the night sky
Just as the stars await to flaunt their presentation
There she goes the Goddess of Song
To quiet the embrace of the night
To return when daybreak consumes her mind
And bring soul to a waiting world once more.
