As the nocturnal dream entwines me;
Into its cold yet comforting embrace,
I see a vibrant darkness spin about.
A clarity of the black, visions unseen,
All my to-be’s and has beens,
Under a canopy of moonlit stream.
I begin to hear the flute and the violins
And the gentle rhythms of the night.
I settle in to catch ‘The Show Tonight’!
The opening act: Silver Beam And Silver Sea Crest
It dances, it prances, puts beauty to the test.
Your heart leaps; you comfortably rest.
Next on show, The Cicadas & ’em Crickets
From yonder the grassy walk and thickets
Simply awesome, simply wicked!
The Fireflies zip zap and zoom, like a Lilliputian aeroshow.
The moon humbled, its pride stumbled,
You see life, as prejudices crumble.
The penultimate display, is an impromptu one.
A pride of beautiful girls passing by.
A split-second visual contact… a smile…by far the best act!!!
The finale ensues with The Wind howling down a heady song,
Carrying something to set ablaze all of my senses.
I live a thousand lives, as the dew condenses!
I stand; in sync with the thousand hairs on my body.
I clap and whistle and cry… Encore …Encore…
They wave, bow and fade behind the curtains, with a promise for more!!!
