Singing with the birds
outside the window
Belting out the words
in the acoustical shower
in or out of tune
on the blanket of grass
Flying beside the butterflies
Humming with the buzz
of the bumble bees
Floating with the stars
Riding the Milky Way to Mars
Swinging on the moon
from one crescent
to the next
What a world of bliss
if we could all experience
this magical happiness

What a world of bliss indeed, great poem, Lauren
Thanks, Martin, wouldn’t it be wonderful! 🙂
This would make for a perfect entry in my wish jar on my blog! I hope you will consider linking it so my readers can read you as well! Beautiful work poet! Beautiful!
P.S. Should you link to this poem, do not forget to grab my Pixie Dust Poet Award 🙂 ♥
Kellie, thanks so much and I’m honored that you enjoyed this enough to have it featured on your blog, which looks absolutely magical! I have to be honest in saying I’m not quite sure just how to link it. I haven’t done that, yet. I can copy and paste the link, if that’s what you mean, but I’m still new and learning the ropes of WP. If you could guide me, I’d be happy to! Thanks again! 🙂
Kellie, I just posted the link for your wish jar; I figured it out! 🙂 Thanks again for commenting and following! 🙂
Cherish these magical moments.
Because as we age
if we’re not careful
they become fewer
Very true, thanks, Sandra, for your insightful comment! 🙂
Ahh Lauren, you’re such a happy person!!! Very cute poetry 😀
Well, I was in a magical frame of mind when I wrote this, but I do have my moments, as I’m sure you’ve read about! Your comment made me laugh, though! Thanks, as always, for your feedback, BG! 🙂
Such a joyful poem – uplifting!
Thanks so much, Betty! I always enjoy receiving your feedback! 🙂
What a beautiful dream reminds me of the carefree beautiful childhood days…bit different but a lot like this
Thank you, Soma! I’m glad I could take you back to some great childhood days~
Well, with your talents we CAN all experience it! 🙂 magnificently done! Thank you for sharing your skills!
Oh, VW, you completely humble me! Your complement really touches me and I greatly appreciate your kindness! 🙂
Lauren, your poetry was so effective in this post that I am still sliding down the other side of a shooting start’s tail! (In my soul, of course). Thank you for this joyous, playful, extravagant celebration of the act of immersing oneself in all the splendors of the universe!
Lovely and carefree. Definitely one of my favorite poems I’ve read. ^_^
Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed this one; the idea just hit me, then I was writing something magical and hoping everyone could experience it, too! 🙂
I love and absolutely adore the second to last verse! it makes me want to actually do that (even though it’s humanly impossible) haha very well-written, Mom with the magic that you portray in this lovely poem!
Thanks, Steph; yes, it would be fun to do these things, wouldn’t it! I’m glad you enjoyed the magic, too! xo
i just love this imagery! 🙂
Thanks so much, Nanda! This was actually quite, “living” in the imagery, as I wrote…:)
Okay, I have to tell you about a piece of “wall art” I bought myself a couple Christmases ago. I can’t always afford gifts for me, but this was a “must have” and a bargain, so there: it’s kind of a wire, metal, glass deal; maybe 6 inches by a foot and a half or two. On the left side is a star–cut out, so you see the wall behind it in the star-shape; then on the right, are 3 smaller star cutouts, with somewhat larger stars beneath the word “Dream”. In the center is the message which led me to buy it: “Reach for the moon–if you miss it, you will land among the stars”. Ain’t it great?! Your poem made me look at it for the mllionth time, and sigh.
I love that quote, Caddo, and your piece of art sounds beautiful. I can see the connection with the poem and I’m glad to nudge you into that dreamy state, again! We have to keep our dreams alive, even through many types of art~thanks for visiting and for sharing!
Aah, nature is beautiful and you have shown that with your expressive words…… great… 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words and your visit and I wish you a peaceful holiday season~
