Beyond Midnight

~~ Beyond midnight I drift off to sleep, Deep, deep into a dream I am floating, And I am walking a garden stepping stone path, It is a magical garden that I find myself in. With graceful flowers in beautiful colours, Creeping phlox, painted daisies and red roses, And in and out of foliage a little bird zips, Zooming towards me, it hovers momentarily. Then he lands on my hand twittering loudly, I am dazzled by his intense colours and wings, But in an instant he is gone lost in the green, And sadly a breeze from my window wakes me. I struggle in my blankets to find the dream, The winding and turning stepping stone path, A place in the corridors of my mind so soothing, That only comes to me long beyond midnight ____________________________ August 3, 2013 Verse Written for the contest, One Of Three, Andrea Dietrich

    So well expressed, you fly high for a bird with Broken Wings. Why the name change? Congratulations on your win Constance.

    I had an idea maybe this one was yours, Constance. I especially liked the last stanza and how your struggle to regain the beautiful dream. Congrats on your win.
