THE PERFECT MELODY

 

 

draevendeluna

 

The air feels heavy,

laden with moisture.

Grey clouds hover

in the darkening sky.

The first raindrops arrive,

pounding on the rooftops

in a staccato melody of their own.

Pound, pound, pound.

Tap, tap, tap.

Rain washes our streets

and clears our minds,

preparing us for a new day.

A SHADOW IN THE WIND

 

The castle sits in the woods,

its walls filled with memories.

Sounds of laughter and music

float in the still air.

Whisps of smoke hover 

between the trees.

A soft shadow in the wind 

settles beside me.

A tap on my shoulder.

A sigh in my ear.

I know who it is.

Goodbye, my love.

We’ll be together again soon.

WE HAVE TONIGHT

 

 

WE HAVE TONIGHT

Dance with me tonight, my darling.

Ignore the evil grins surrounding us.

Let us sway with the music’s quick beat.

No one needs to see the fear I hide

as you twirl me around the dance floor.

A smile is plastered on my face.

My eyes glued to yours.

I know there will be a meeting tonight.

The evil players will be present.

The evil one will soon be revealed.

Don’t let it be you, my loved one.

The Fourth of July

4th of July

 
Lights in the night sky
Colors float so high
Raining in hues
Red, white, and blue
Victory is our day
We have come here to play
Music and marching bands
We raise our clapping hands
Celebrate the 4th of July
Let the colorful lights fly high

DANCE BENEATH THE LIGHTS

Dance beneath the bright lights,

Past the lifelike statues,

Figures entombed in glass,

As the dance floor grows bigger.

The music quickens its beat.

Couples twirl in circles.

The clock strikes midnight.

Let the games begin.

CASTLE IN THE SKY

 

 

CASTLE IN THE SKY

The castle in the sky,
Oh my, oh my, oh my.
I want to go there.
Let free my long hair.
Water flows by my feet,
Such a miraculous feat.
A violin at my feet, 
But the water appears deep.
As it parts for me.
I walk through the sea.
The castle in the sky.
Oh my, oh my, oh my.
