A Poet's Happy Dream

I found myself against a willow propped.
The stones nearby me were a hundred-fold.
and one by one I tossed them as they plopped
into a rill while other pebbles rolled,
as if with one accord, away from me.

Their hundred ripples bubbled sweet champagne.
I drank. . . and then I tasted poetry.
saw flowers dance, and nothing was mundane!
Elysian then became the air I breathed.
The sun glowed purplescent.  Hocus-pocus!
I lay in greenest green while music wreathed
the meadow, lulling me. . . till I lost focus.

I woke to dusk and that inquietude
that ever shadows my dark solitude.

    Oh this is delicious Andrea. Lingering in such a paradise, losing focus, providing fertile ground for emergence of all that is waiting to surface. Beautiful.

    A nice splash of beauty in solitude. Beautiful Poem with the picturesque details of feelings and longings, while facing the loneliness amid surroundings of Nature. 'Elysian then became the air I breathed' is the most beautiful line. Thanks. Best wishes and love Andrea Dietrich

    Hi Andrea, thank you for your comment, I already changed "od" to "of". Thank you for the hint! Whatever others might say or think - I really appreciate sonnets! Sorry about the contest, biút it is like lottery!!! So we should not take the outcome too serious. Have a great weekend!-... Love, Gert
