By Jay M.


If my words were leaves,
What a bonfire they would make,
Raining down on a cold night,
Items of the fall, to keep you warm,
Alive in the shimmering moonlight;
To wrap you in lustre, at beck and call,
Every Dawn of the fall.

If my words were the stars nigh,
They would adorn your every sigh
With glimmer, every movement a shimmer,
Drops of dew earned, lit alive with a celestial light.

If my words were flowers, what a bedecked path they would lay,
For you to tread, where your desire may,
Gently led,
Into a dream, within a glorious dream…
