Sequined Dreams

Sequined Dreams

A Poem by icelandicblue

Innocence or ignorance?
Perhaps today pure happenstance,
dig your heels and point your toes,
follow where the warm wind blows.

Pursue it while it gently sways,
for these are wine and roses days.
Sweetly seen through big blue eyes,
find your footing near the rise.

Sing your songs, now don’t be shy.
Tap your feet in mock surprise,
soft green turf your carpet now,
lose the furrow of your brow.

Things you know and that to learn,
bundle up your grave concerns,
throw them into canyons wide,
for life’s bounty will provide.

A wanderer on dusty roads,
shedding all your heavy loads.
Breathe in deeply, cool and clear,
skip on paths and feel no fear.

Keep your head above the clouds.
All alone? So laugh out loud!
Finer things await your hands,
sequined dreams and golden sands.

Ply thy wonder of all sights,
rest by hearty firelight,
don your hat a tad askew,
believe that love will see you through.

i really love this poem...but wow...

this feels like something i would have read in the late fifties or early sixties...the simpler times...when life wasn't such a complicated mess.

love the ride here, felt like i stuck out my thumb and the poem picked me up...

i hitchhiked through a bit of nostalgia.

How perfect the rhyme scheme and pentameter, and you kept true to the end, which was left open but felt final... The imagery full of yearning, the poetry you kept true ... These words that are you. Thank you for sharing.

A classy punch that followed each line. I'm on this road with you in mind.

Nice rhythm and a wonderful sentiment to this poem. Glad it appeared in the feed as often older works get lost in the shuffle. A really good poem.

tipping my hat to you Icey! the news (i am a confessed hound) has been so unsettling for too long .. your poem led me down green pastures .. barefooted and eyes full of wonder .. a much needed sigh .. going back for another dose of it :)

That makes me happy Einstein, thank you.
It simply gave me wings to fly among your words and touch the sense in your verses. I could smell the roses and feel the sunlight ... rythm is harmonious and nice to listen to your own voice as you read it. I loved it ... thanks for sharing ....

Thanks so much for reading and swaying!
Makes me think of one of my favourite ballads, concerning a married lady of standing and material possession who falls for a passing by gypsy traveler and throws it all away to be with him and then truly finds happiness in the freedom of love and life! Much to the Squires disapproval !!

A fine, uplifting, rousing poetic rendition !!
