Rock Me Gently

Rock me gently into a stardust's dream
Till sweet dreams kiss eyelids drooping with sleep
Where evening's prism bursts into twirled reams.

The thrill of Mozart notes on your lips sweep
Me into a glimmering, vintage night
You gift me opal reveries to keep.

Fireflies trailing vales and leas delight
Pewter clouds gently quilt a lullaby
Birds coo final ditty in fading light.

Wispy sky hangs up its hat, triste goodbye
To a cruising, mellow sun, adieu
Then, stars are born as tinseled moonbeams sigh.

On dappled landscape, tempo of night's hue
I breathe to a sweet rush of honeydew.

  1. And I breathe through your verses that are as sweet as the honeydew. My beautiful Queen of Poetry, what a gorgeous poem.

    You make me dream.

  2. ‘Wispy sky hangs up its hat, triste goodbye, To a cruising, mellow sun, adieu, Then, stars are born as tinseled moonbeams sigh’. How do you find these words, Yasmin. Genius ~ George

  3. ohmygoodness this gorgeous! I felt like I was part of a dream, wispy yet clear. I’m not sure how you’re able to do that, transport me far away to when I get to the end I blink and look around wondering how much time has gone by.
