The Glittering Sun

I saw her through the glittering sun
Perched high upon the lifeguard stand
Perfectly sculpted under bright red
Knees weak, tripping in the soft sand
The gulls echoing a distant cry
Dreams of love & what could be
The salt air marinating upon our skin
I’ve lost my heart here upon the sea

Once Upon A Time

vacation-888817

Once upon a time
In the land of kings & crowns
Princesses spoke in rhymes
With a belief in magic to be found
Giant castle walls
Alligators living in the moats
Knights clanking big & tall
Gentlemen in handsome coats
The ladies sitting down for tea
Each with a jeweled pillow to sit
Dressed grandly in all their finery
Each wee lass of the proper etiquette
Fairies danced above their heads
Their wings spraying drops of glitter
Like a whisper as thin as thread
Laughter rising as the pixies flitter
Wonderful to sip from cups & plates
Smiles abound on everyone’s face
Much nicer when no one’s late
Together is the happiest place
