Stealing Serenity


 


 


Trickles of dreams


Afloat on wayward streams


Caress and placate my mind today.


As thoughts of a tomorrow


Without its turmoil or sorrow


Float like angel moths my way.


For beyond this world mine


Lay the gentle green pastures


Which are captured in the transparency of a separate time.


For it is here from within dreams like these,


That the whispers of these tiny angels unto my mind do tease.


And it is here that I so chose to return,


as the remains of my former world collapse and burn.


Therefore, I now lift up my eyes


To behold the beauty, which now lies


 in the soft secret place of my mind.


For I watch the angel moth in its splendid and cavorting grace


As it with its buttercup wings


Brushes genteelly against the hollow image my face.


and it is then that, I realize


The joy one can capture


When stealing serenity from the angel moth


In the moments before it greets the sun and dies.

I'm reminded of the bird (name?)that sings its greatest song just before it impales itself and dies. You always touch the deep inner places of our psyche.Superb poem!
