Sleeping Beauty Slept, A Poem



Sleeping Beauty slept
Ceaseless beauty
her solemn face
and the passing sun
slipped through the curtains
alight upon her silken skin
She slept
And she dreamt
of flowers
in the spring
she found herself
intoxicated by their scent
and she strove to dance
beneath the rains of spring
arms outstretched
arms outstretched
and tears of joy
she wept.
She slept
And she dreamt
Of passing summer days
The warmth of sun upon her skin
The smell of earth and fresh pine
She sings along
With the call of birds
And mountains rise
In the distance
And water trickles
Along the stream
She walks along the path
Alone, but unafraid
And it is here
She finds her heart
At peace
Upon the trail
Upon the earth
In a valley of wildflowers
At the tops of mountains
In the breathe of overarching sky.
Prince charming leaned in
Lips poised for a kiss
He meant well
He meant well
But she pushed him away
for she wanted to dream.

      So glad you do 🙂 Saw a beautiful painting and could not help myself but put a twist on that story. Yes, I am back and I hope to stay. There may be times when I am quiet, but when I can be – I will try to be around.
