The dream and the song live on and on

When I’m in glee of your alluring smile As you gaze merrily ebullience of dawn Caressing blush of emerging sunrise Scintillating fervor upon magenta arc Whispering gingerly to budding revelry Strolling in morning’s flowery breeze Creating your own moments of intimacy Ignoring plea of my romantic appeal, If only I could be that spectacular sun Whose arrival you await so longingly; May be, I too, can live in your dream. When somber moods reign the night And darkened clouds shroud horizon I hear the clamor of dissonant vibes Speaking boldly, yet saying nothing Awaiting silently for glimmer of light Exuberating luminance of galactic arena Where, in its adoration you feel lost, If only I could be that brightest of stars Twinkling for you from heavens above And touch like it does your fervid aura; May be, I too, can conquer your heart. When face of your winter turns harsh Thrashing snowfall in freezing storms You seek relief from autumn’s reveries Reminiscing in zeal of crimson prairies Nostalgic in colors of passionate alacrity Rejecting emptiness of frozen vagaries Eyeing instead for enchanting greenery, If only I could be your spring’s ballad In lyrics that arouse pulses of desires Elevating harmony in rhythms of harp; May be, I too, can seduce your song. Sometimes you tell me, I’m your dream Sometimes you say, you own my heart Sometimes you vow, you are my song-- As the dream and the song live on and on… August 4, 2020 Placed 2nd: If only, may be, sometimes poetry contest Sponsor: Silent One

If she loves you, she probably sees you as the sun and stars, Vijay. And I love the way you describe the transition of seasons. Even after we lose loved ones, their songs can live in our dreams. Beautiful, my friend! Best wishes in the contest. Now I have another fave. Hugs, Carolyn

I love this so... the caressing blush (such a inspiration to me)... whispering gingerly (a caress that whispers intimately)... Thrashing snowfall (echoes the truth of snow white beauty)... to me, this poem speaks of miracles and moonbeams, intimacy and intricate plans. It is a welcome breath of fresh air. I enjoyed it tremendously. God bless you always
