I lay my dreams on flower petals,
by Maria Kamy Abdool
Dripping off the edges onto the steamy floor,
Summer is dancing on my glorious path,
Her heat is kissing the softness of my skin;
As peaceful sounds from birds surround
The day, joyous and beautiful,
Taking over the world.
I lay my hopes on a blade of grass
As the wind fiercely evokes itself,
Pushing off my every might into the
Wilderness of a deep forest.
Crisp and parched,
The leaves above sing with the melodies
Of the soothing breeze.
I lay my wishes in a straw basket,
Secured by butterflies,
Blue and red, encircling the air,
Kissing my thoughts as they spill from me.
A few moments later,
I am caught up with visions of you,
And I fall in love, all over again.
On this enchanting summer day.
