Your beauty resides
Subsides the torment of my soul
A reverie of magical kingdoms
Where princes bare witness
To days of flowers and song
Your bare foots steps
Leave soft imprints behind
In the dewy grasses of my mind

Fairy. Love it. In particular the idea of footprints left on one’s mind.
Thank you…I got swept away by this photo!
Gorgeous picture! And your words compliment it so well. 🙂
Thank you Jaime. The photo truly captivated me!
Very nice 🙂
Thank you Joe 🙂
That picture is the cover for one of my favorite books, Entwined by Heather Dixon. Great poem too :-)!
Thank you for letting me know where it originated Heather. I was hard pressed to find its origin!
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed my poem.
Nice! The neologism: storetry is too …
I’m glad to hear that you like the term, as do I! I think it’s about time that I do another storetry.
the chimes of fingers
across the ‘board
the damsel’s mind tinkers
old thoughts are floored.
Beautiful, thank you!
