I Had a Perfect Dream

While the fire crackled and the wind tossed ice pellets against the window,

I wrapped up in a bright blue shawl decorated with dolphins

and dreamed a perfect dream.

Snow flakes turned into a magic carpet.

I rode a glittering Milky Way

to a land of palm trees and beaches draped in gold and black sand.

Sigh. I'm going to have to make this dream come true.

  1. I would love to see a black and gold beach. i can't wait for dream land.

  2. I was just looking at your blogroll and it appears that no males merit being listed. The question then results as to why not?

  3. @1markt A very good point. The main reason is that my blogroll was originally made up of participants in a blogging class I took (all female). I later added romance writers that I interact with in several RWA chapters. It's on my ToDo list to add a number of the great bloggers (several are men)who participate in memes like Sunday Scribblings, Flash 55, or today's Carry on Tuesday. I will use the motivation of your well deserved comment to get me moving on that. If you know any great male romance writers who are blogging, please send me a link and I'll visit their sites.

  4. I want to ride a milky way!! Love this poem. Lovely... lovely...
