Sonnet 23

Written by: Johnny Sumler

Last night I walked into a cloud of dream
The distant kind where the waters run deep
And you beside me, did your presence gleam...
Beyond the moon abroad my mystic sleep
          The clouds, gone with the wind, left skies alone
          For us to sing and dance upon the blue
          Underneath air above our robes have flown
          Only out done by humming birds anew
Mornings magic returned myself to me
And cotton clouds consumed the colored sky
I thank thy dream, as now I think of thee
On light landscapes of love I learn to fly
     We share our lips over the crescent moon
     Relived by kisses through the afternoon
