In Wonderment

Tied ribbons into bows to adorn your hair,

silken sheen with swishes in swirling air

Knotted streams of scarlet for tresses of gold -

braided with highlights from a sunrise on hold


Spangles for a jewel untouched by time,

score of beauty - like winds into a chime

Nimble and spry, lovely merriment's show,

proving angels do fly in a halo's glow


Ruffles and pleats  forming garments to wings,

with extended arms - a world of magic sings

Tiptoeing in step to a roundabout ode,

eyes filled in wonderment as dreams unfold


Past castles for kings awaits a far dell,

love me or not, daisy's petals will tell

One by one, plucked betwixt finger and thumb,

whispers seek a favored heart in the sum


To where flowers beckon, and blossoms speak,

all in a land of imagined mystique

Traveling to faraway - new worlds appear

even the face on the moon approaches near


Exhaled long breaths - as fantasies come in sight

playtime gives chase to another day's delight

Nary a care on paths to make believe,

wherein lies your own beauty - for you to see

O my goodness! Beautiful

O my goodness! Beautiful images.They say a woman should never cut her hair, because her true beauty is connected to it. Don't know how true, but this poem makes it seem so.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
