Nocturnal Visitor

Through the foggy realm of sleep

A hazy slyph came from the deep

And in this haunting nighttime mist

Came a tender touch, then a kiss.

.

This sprightly spirit danced through the room

Banishing the impending gloom

Her gown a lacey, gauzy veil

Her features pallid white, and pale.

.

Her scent jasmine and columbine

Mixed with that of rose and wine

She vanished into the morning’s air

The sleeper reaching in despair.

.

With dawn all trace of her was gone

‘cept a hint of jasmine in the air

On the nightstand in the sun

A wilted rose was laying there.

    1. Hi Maryrose,
      Glad you liked this one. Don’t know if I was fighting it or if it was fighting me but I finally just said it’s enough and sent it out. I don’t mind if you reblog anything.
      Paul
