Midnight Pearl


It was well past midnight, the streets dark and bare
She appeared out of nowhere, just standing there

A full moon slithered across a cloudy sky
I was mesmerized by her without knowing why

Never had I seen such a beautiful young girl
She shimmered and glistened like a precious pearl

She approached me slowly and took my hand
The warmth of her closeness was truly so grand

She guided me toward the seashore close by
Spoke not a word -- she seemed rather shy

The rest of the evening is all just a blur
When I finally awoke, I couldn't find her

I searched the shoreline both up and down
I talked with shopkeepers all over town

No one had seen this lithe sensation
And said I must be having an hallucination

Was I only dreaming -- was she really there
What actually happened -- what did we share

I may never again see this lovely young girl
But I'll always remember my Midnight Pearl

    That's some kind of dream...It's almost like a modern day Cinderella poem bc u had to ask all the shoppekeepers if they had seen her and you searched high and low...what a lovely flowing rhyme and superb imagination...Miss ya dear friend...I'm still digesting the angel who played guitar in one of your more recent poems...that one really hit home with me! Usually we entertain the angels, but for some reason that angel wanted to entertain all of u...Gwendolen

    Thanks, Jared! I haven't written anything at all for a while - no reason - just not motivated or inspired I guess. I appreciate the comments. Be Blessed!
