A little this – a little that!

Dreamland

on January 19, 2012

Once again, I picked this from the list at Shadow Poetry. Here’s the nonet!

Dreamland:

Carefully placed footsteps on moonbeams

Stardust is caught between her toes

World held in hands with wonder

Every wish made command

All is possible

Conquering fear

Still she sleeps

Soundly

Dreams

Author’s Note: While I’m mostly content with how this poem came out, I wasn’t super thrilled about the last line. A part of me wanted to cut it out all together for lack of a better word, but I decided to keep it for now just to complete the nonet.Β

    Ray, this is far beyond enchanted, ethereal, magical: it is other-worldly! The next time I dream about tip toeing on moonbeams, I will check for stadust between my toes before putting on my shoes the next morning. You see, you have made me a believer!
