Villanelle.

Scatter Fine Thoughts

Slip those broken dreams from your tired mind,
let them soak in the silk of morning's grace,
release all the fears into gentle wind.

Open your eyes and the future you'll find,
let wild smiles touch upon sorrow's dark face,
slip those broken dreams from your tired mind.

Leave the terrors of the past to their kind,
watch them fade away from your heart's mild space
release all the fears into gentle wind.

Beauty's forever with smiles that don't bind,
dance on its texture of sweet scented lace,
slip those broken dreams from your tired mind.

Live for life now without the pains that grind,
float on joyous air then quicken the pace,
release all the fears into gentle wind.

Scatter fine thoughts and leave sadness behind,
find in this doubtful existence your place,
slip those broken dreams from your tired mind,
release all the fears into gentle wind.
