On Carousel’s Sweet Ride

On Carousel’s Sweet Ride

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Swirling enchanted alabaster skies

"
















































Swirling enchanted alabaster skies

In trembling voice a June berry sighs

In the fragrance of a black velvet rose

With wonders how the seasons grow

Hovering on the carousel’s sweet ride

My horse bounding meadows in stride

Painted gold yarrow’s drifting dance

Now summer’s gone in happenstance

Nights of the soft sensual lilac mist

In dreamish warm colors gently kissed

I’m lifted now on those golden wings

Soaring on childhood’s whispered swing

Starlight, star bright, every star align tonight

When they ignite, bring every dream in sight…

Alice and her magic all weaved up in your swirled words. What a beauty, Craig! How I do love your colorful visions. Always colors, and flowers, and all things beautiful and pleasant. So happy to see!

You cast magic spell of seasons change with dazzling rhyming and breathtaking descriptions, dear Craig. You bring back mesmerizing memories of innocence and elation. One can get lost happily in your stunning penillion and never wants to return to subsistence again.
Espero que tudo está ótimo com você meu lindo amigo. Uma grande abraço.

Being old & forgetful, it's "out of sight - out of mind" for me. I haven't seen you in my newsfeed & I'm sorry I haven't remembered to look up your writing lately. You sent me a read request -- holiday collaboration (I responded to Emma's) -- & I'll use this as a wake-up call for me to review something of yours! I've been wanting to write something "Christmas-like" that isn't filled with the traditional stuff that I never follow . . . this poem gives me a ton of ideas. This is what I envision when I think about the mood of the holiday season for me. Who cares about the gorging & shopping? To me, the holidays are a reason to just go around marveling at such sensual & sensory delights as you describe with vivid imagery for all the senses! Hope your holiday season is just like this! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

dear 🦉 Owl... enchanting are your words
In three quarters time... a song of summers lavender mist on Carousels where painted horses drift into meadows where wild flowers drift into the autumn colors of melancholy.

Pat, so thankful you enjoyed this ride on the carousel. Wishing you a week of such joys.
In high school I ran track. I was a sprinter, and man I do not believe I ran faster than how fast I read the verses of your poem! I mean it took a good thirty seconds for my mind to slow down after the final verse. The cadence you created was astonishly clear and crisp. "In dreamish warm colors gently kissed . . . " now that is the verse that propels the reader to the finish line, out of breath.

' Nights of the soft sensual lilac mist - In dreamish warm colors gently kissed '..

Your 'dreamish' word fits so wonderfully well, truly magical! Your poetry offers differences. rainbows and unicorns and all things on another plain. Your mind must fly every so often, Owl!
