lost in its magic
the sunset wrapped in thoughts
securely golden

gold gilts the sky
the kisadees find shelter
for the span of night

silhouettes weave
the night for dream seekers
loss of bird songs

solace found
fullness of cooling breezes
twinkling stars

to share a wish
one such falling star plunges
lost to fantasy

moon rays
fill spaces lost to mind sight
dreams filter in
--gillena cox



i am blog hopping today at Poetry Jam the prompt is "lost and found"

oo i like falling stars...and both day and night have their magic...some are lost for a few hours so we can enjoy the magic of the other...cool take...

Good one :) I always wanted to wish on a falling star but never have seen one. Send one my way next time you see it ;)

I enjoyed the peaceful and serene tone of your poem, Gillena. It feels dreams can indeed 'filter in'.

Lovely poem!
