If only!

If wishes were horses,
How magnificent they would be,
Unbroken in spirit,
Gliding through unbridled
Running wild with the wind
Deep into the night,
Whiter than the moon
Riding under the starlight
If only!


If dreams could fly,

Every time we sleep,

One would never want to wake up

And face the early morn

Trying to catch the shooting stars

Dancing with the starlight
While we rest, under cover

Warm besides the blazing fire

If only!

    A lovely poem..and i was so very surprised at these lines cos i posted a story on dreams this morning.I cant seem to agree more..If only i had read ur poem before.. 😉

  8. I love the picture more than the poem… there is that untouched beauty about it, thats rare to find in pics these days … i’m amazed u managed to find pics like those (u used google i assume?) … i always get ghastly, slutty ones!!

  9. exotic, glorious, far-off lands
    in sleep’s invisible tender hands
    but how ironic is it that with sunshine’s strain
    we see but the “darkling plains”!
