I Was There Watching

I remember the smiles
The twinkle in their eyes

Twas the edge of the emerald forest  it was 
Where they danced in the twilight of the morn!
It was only yesterday -----  but I was there
Dancing along with them !

No,, no  it was not a dream
We held hands as I  heard 
The  temple bells  ring out 
In the cool  summer  breeze 
The night shadows  danced on the winds 
No,,,,  it was not a dream !

Songs from the sea whispered by
As I caught the light from the diamonds
No,,,,, they were not dew drops 
The unicorn from the emerald forest 
   told me so !

Was it just a lullaby  from yesterday
 No ,, it could not be  for I was there 
 dancing along with them ,,, I remember !

    you can get a lot from just a title. this title had me whizzing. the poem was quite different from what i was imagining.

    And so the trail continues on beyond the dusk into the dawn. Inspired by the temple bells. Reality whispers beyond our hells. Ethereal dreams of emerald green. So tell us Debbie, what do they mean?

    imagination surely grippes, and there they be, little radar blips, and friends of little me...

    This poem puts me in the mind of "The Mists Of Avalon" Love the other worldly/dreamy feel of it. :) Tanya

    And on the edge of steamy shores there stood the mysterious four doors. Beyond their creak the world unfolds unto ethereal stories untold. Where dreams and dances begin their flight. Among the branches stretched out of sight. The cast of creatures who cast their spells. Into the souls who ring their bells. The twinkling coolness whispered sweet. Into the heart and made it beat. Yes I was watching too. That day you thought it was only you. :)
