SUCH SHOULD BE THE COLOR OF REAL DREAMS

On a serene Autumn night when the waning moon
hangs in the middle of the murky sky, 
it seems a huge yellow balloon;
stardust falls as pollen from flowers around the pound,
and it doesn't pelt as rain, but make a cascading sound...
every shadow vanishes along with the owls' cry.


Bedazzled, I hold out my anxious hands to catch that shower of light gold,
and it falls gently as transparent raindrops bouncing only once,
then settling as sand after a whirlwind lasting the briefest second;
so heavy it becomes, that I let some escape without reluctance:
spreading it on the leaves of the scented spruces that attract moonbeams...
a thought comes to me, " Such should be the color of real dreams!

    Yes it is true ....... strange to think that everyone in the world looking at the same moon. - And think how many poems it is written about: The moon ...... A very enjoyable poem Andrew. - oxox //Anne-Lise :)
