Fireflies

Image credit: google.com



Sail above
the ocean,
Wings dip
the water,
Sparkle
from
the Moon,
you 
and 
me
on our boat,
we sit,
counting the stars,
and 
as 
lights
follow 
through,
we 
dream
little dreams
together,
our companions
shine 
like
diamonds,
night is ready
for 
adventure.
as
 we 
smile

  7. going down the list, I come to Morning...and it's refreshing.

    this is a lovely piece. I like the structure of it, I like the images (many)...kinda like that old ''Moon River'' melody. Our companions (the fireflies) shining like diamonds. Adventure awaits.

    Nice words, lines, and flow.

  27. lovely words!
    i like the structure of the poem. it looks like the reflection of the moonlight on water. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, the structure does definitely support the words which are lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Like it! Not sure if the fireflies were a metaphor for the earlier description of the moon sparkling on the water, but I've always thought moonlight on ocean water looks like swarming bees, so I definitely liked the idea of them being fireflies! Cool.
