I wrote this almost 14 yrs ago. I found it this morning and thought I'd post it as I'm still wide awake all night long. Now I'm staying up with my new 6 wks old granddaughter, Elizabeth Anne Carter. A very good way to pass the time. 

A Mermaid In A Starry Sky


In the middle of her mind,
In the middle of the night,
She escaped from her body
Leaving all adversity behind.
She floated amongst the angels.
She felt the wind of their wings
Humming a gentle love song
That only nightengales sing.
She tumbled along a star path
Catching a comet's tail
Riding it to a dreamscape
Along a meteor trail. 
Falling into a time warp,
Streaking across the sky,
Diving like a swan into
The dipper's eye. 
She swam in the milky way, 
A mermaid in a starry sky

Twirling, swirling, cream and honey
Without wings she could fly.
On and on she went 
Without a single care
Magical, whimsical dreamland
In peaceful slumber,  she's there.

Wonderful! Every time you wake up in the morning you still have access to your dreams, but as soon as you open your eyes, all that reality is shattered. However, that's the only REAL reality.

Beautiful! Lovely flow and rhythm.

A lovely whimsical poem Kathy, just what I needed.

This is beautiful. I read this after coming in from watching the clouds drift past the moon during the early pre-dawn hours. A perfect poem for the occasion.
