Blue Reverie

Blue Reverie

As the clouds dance their pas de deux
In the blue reverie of the night sky,
Moonglow reveals the spirit of you,
And my heart is lifted up so high.
In the blue reverie of the night sky,
Stardust mingles with the shooting stars,
And my heart is lifted up so high
Above the treetops, so very far.
Stardust mingles with the shooting stars.
Birds serenade with gentle lullabies
Above the treetops, so very far
As wistful tears sting my weary eyes.
Birds serenade with gentle lullabies,
Invoking memories from long ago.
As wistful tears sting my weary eyes,
A restless breeze blows through my window.
Invoking memories from long ago,
My senses stir within, the past reborn.
A restless breeze blows through my window,
Imparting sweet essence of apples and corn.
My senses stir within, the past reborn,
Walking hand in hand through fields of gold.
Imparting sweet essence of apples and corn,
Countless chapters remain unwritten, untold.
Walking hand in hand through fields of gold,
The autumn colors paint their brilliant hues.
Countless chapters remain unwritten, untold.
Oh, to have just one more day with you!
The autumn colors paint their brilliant hues
As amber sun plays in periwinkle skies.
Oh to have just one more day with you!
I have much more to say than a final goodbye.
As amber sun plays in periwinkle skies,
My heart breaks with the call of the solitary loon.
I have much more to say than a final goodbye,
But the hour of parting has come too soon.
My heart breaks with the call of the solitary loon,
Moonglow reveals the spirit in you.
But the hour of parting has come too soon
As the clouds dance their pas de deux.

  1. ah Collen lovely lilt to this one, smooth flow and imagery that I associate with you. I haven’t read you for a long time. It’s Lori from myspace I am over at All Poetry as Dragon Sorceress and have been writing there happily for two years. I had not seen a deca pantom before well crafted

  2. Hi Lori! Thank you and so nice to see you!!! Dahlia has us on a deca pantoum challenge right now over on Facebook. Lovely to hear from you, hope all is well! xoxo

    • next time you talk to her please send my love. I’m not on Facebook. I miss the Myspace writers

  3. Beautiful!

  4. Not to be overlooked, in this magnificent deca pamtoum, is that this is a serious sentimental piece, one that is close to your heart. The meaning here is not lost to this reader.

    • Thank you Myke – I was not sure I was up to Dahlia’s wonderful deca pantoum challenge. But the stars seem to align and I wrote this in less than 2 hours on the plane ride home from California. 😉
