In whispered worlds of chance

In whispered worlds of chance

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

First poem of 2019 in the Wonderland collection...

"






























Do dreams die or merely sleep

in whispered worlds of chance?

And will I find the Wonderland

I saw in your first, sweet glance?

 

Is the world of substance all

one can ever hope to hold?

Are there not deeper worlds

with numberless gifts untold?

 

I feel you so much closer now

as fleeting glimpses wink and sigh.

And I reach for you in my dreams;

the touch of your soft skin’s lullaby.

 

I will search a thousand skies

in endless sunsets’ scarlet bliss.

Until I find your dreamish life

and am awakened by your kiss.

Very beautiful and insightful! I really love the thought of dreaming of such things...knowing this will be in a collection called "Wonderland" makes it even better. I really enjoyed the imagery and hidden thoughts which were spoken here. "I reach for you in my dreams...", that would have to be my favorite line. Quite lovely, yet delicate to the audience. Happy New Year and can't wait for more!

Sorry I haven't seen you in my newsfeed -- being old & forgetful, I lost track of your writing! I'm happy to stumble on you again! Your writing is whimsical yet straightforward, a perfect combination for my feeble reading consciousness. I love how the theme of "Wonderland" can actually be FELT in these two poems I've just read of yours . . . rather than being a figment of the writer's imagination! *wink! wink!* Now I've got you in my reading library rotation, so I can keep up with some of your stuff (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you! :)
nice ... soft and romantic read Owly .. sometimes the "dreamish" world is more preferable for me and I do sometimes go back in it and delay awakening ... i especially like how you blended both worlds all wrapped up in the same thing ... ones love ... your words in rhyme and rhythm lift me up this morning sir!

“The touch of your soft skin’s lullaby”. One of the most romantic sighs I have ever read... poetry as fragile as an eggshell is a nest of provocative chicks. Truly, Pat
