Soft and fragrant

Light and pure

Sparks my own

Seen in a mirror


Close my eyes

To open my mind

Dance of dreams

No passage of time


The patter of magic

Soft footfalls

Brilliant spaces

Tiny halls


Sparkles and stars

Shimmer and shine

All bring stories

Laughter mine


Enter thoughts too big to see

Hear them clear and brought to me


As I carry off my dreamed gifts dear

I know


I’ll be drawn back here

-Gina Valley

    My inspiration is usually hiding under an apron or bogged down with my job, but we all need time to rest. Beautiful little poem!

      Thank you, Amberr. I’m glad you liked it. It’s one of my favorites.
      Personally, I find the stack of bills on my desk pretty inspirational! 🙂
