Charmed

I’m sure you could grow a rose on the moon,
turn every mountain valentine-red,
and bewitch the air to spin me a tune
from magic.

You colour my skies with words unsaid,
you seed enchantment deep in my dread-strewn
days - until they blossom with hope instead. 

So float me to bliss in your wish-balloon,
and spirit your dream-spells into my head
‘til we dance through the stars like twin planets hewn
from magic.

Thank you Andrea! I liked your weird! This one’s not for the contest as I forgot to write on one of the themes.

Your words, truly weave a magic spell to charm anyone who reads them. Delicate, elegant and enchanting.

Your poetry could grow roses on the moon, it is made of magic! Such a graceful write (also great rhyme of balloon and hewn)

Thanks Michelle! Just realised I didn’t write to the correct theme for the contest, so I won’t be entering! Glad you enjoyed it :-)
