Star Forever Bright

     
http://hqhdwalls.com/bird-falcon-wallpaper-324.html













In my dreams darkness came
the tears inside began to swell
I found myself by a wishing well
haunting voice calling my name

from the west a falcon appeared
messenger from the sky-world
overhead somber clouds swirled
in mists of grey he disappeared

drinking from the spring of life
maple leaves cling in  misty dew
visions in a sea of violet blue
hidden garden free from strife

come to me, oh morning light
on restless wings, autumn nears
harmony in a heavenly sphere
faith a distant star forever bright

in my dreams the darkness came
faith a distant star forever bright

  3. I enjoyed the flight of this poem - on the second journey I realised that dreams should be safe even if sad.. I think the falcon came when needed..like the sunrise and light perhaps.. I hope new wishes go in the well

  5. I do hope that through the darkness light can grow... remember that if it dark even the faintest of lights can be bright.

    1. Hi Bjorn, yes if there is even a flicker the light can grow and not be snuffed.

  7. Ah, even in the darkness there is always a distant star if we look hard enough. There is, thankfully, always a glimmer of hope.

    1. Wendy, thank you for a lovely comment to be swept away much like soaring in an endless sky...

  12. I love the balance of this poem. The thought that although there is darkness, light remains bright (perhaps, brighter because of the dark). I also enjoy the structure and breaks--the poem reads like a dream, pausing and breaking as it tells its tale.
