Oh haste, brumal mists, that twilight kisses on hollyhocks, meadow-born, Sweet tears resurrected on petals neglected, collect 'midst the early morn. The dew-christened flowers parading the hours, sing hope to the callow hearts, Then rises the moon, while it saunters to swoon and the ballet of eventide starts. Tall grasses that thrive with new life, come alive with a shimmer of luminous lights, A slow-spinning dance of glowing romance, that July has thus gifted its nights. A heavens' breast lighted by stars, unrequited, sets stage on the vault, above - Night's magic, gone viral, as fireflies spiral ... in a whimsical waltz ... of love! ~ 8th Place ~ in the "Spiral" Poetry Contest, Kai Michael Neumann, Judge & Sponsor.
