Magic carpet ride for two 1

Magic carpet ride for two

Lifted by the lovely kiss you just blew my way
Up on a magic ride that  take the two of us away
Over the oceans  and   Himalayas, as it were
To  meet up with the beaming early morning star.
We will chill out in the valleys mantled by the hills
Of Elysian asphodels’ nectar, will have our fill
Revel in the plains of the foaming white Ganges
Ride the Indian  ocean breakers by  the high ranges
Off with the masks that we so far chose to wear
Commune with nature in the coconut groves, so near
Sitting about at dawn in my sunlit humble patio
We will sip  tea, me and my friend  from Ohio

    To dip one's toes in the cool water of the Himalyas, and greet the earliest morning stars, all of these ingredients make for a spectacular journey.....aren't we allowed to stop by Dairy Queen for some ice cream on the way home?...Let's skip the tea and shoot for some chocolate ice cream!! Yes????....Pleased that your amazing imagination was celebrated with this win today, Jag..You deserve it..I know how hard u work at these beautiful poems...bless u, gwendolen

    I think any lady would enjoy a magic carpet ride as eloquently put as this one. Well done and good luck in the contest. :)

    Sounds like fun love, no pretensions Jag - glad you are so pleasently inspired - " the valleys mantled by the hills... ",thats nice! I love India, and would suffer so that I may voyage down the Ganges someday; I'll need to be careful for those insatiable monkeys though - Have you ever made a pilgrimage on the Ganges Jag? J.A.B. %
