Sleeping Dragons

courtesy of Magic4walls.com
















entranced in oceanic tides
in a restless heart love resides
blue moods, song of the mellow moon
dreaming in a romantic swoon

waves burst under rhythmic sighing
breeze whispers of love undying
splashing notes, druid's mystical tune
dreaming in a romantic swoon

beyond the stars, a cosmic world
mighty dragon wings soar unfurled
hope lingers, come sing to me soon
dreaming in a romantic swoon

boundless depths of murmuring sea
moaning between, bodies set free
pleasure found in a warm lagoon
dreaming in a romantic swoon

charting new sunburst horizons
in silence spirits are rising
finding our voice we softly croon
dreaming in a romantic swoon

  9. I love the dreamy, ethereal and mystical atmosphere in this poem ... so mesmerizing - and yet, soothing (like a fairy tale bedtime story). And your wonderful job with the rhyme, pulls the piece together so beautifully.

    One will always be presented with the inspiration to be loved though in silence they begin to develop. It is the patient one that will get the best! Beautiful write True!
