Last night I saw those shreds again-
Weightless, they kept floating
In shades of blue, black and green.
They kissed my eyes and sketched dreams never seen before.
We walked down the lanes as the clouds began to pour.
Our wet fingers touched and we saw our world through them-
Each new sun kissed the petals of a flower unnamed,
Every bird sang in tongues unknown.
We sat there watching the sun set-
Into our steaming cups of coffee.
We set our paper boats free-
In the gurgling sea-
Each guarded with a wish, a silent prayer-
Hoping for endless moments to share.
The shreds fast disappeared with the moon,
And I wished for them to be back soon.
For, if dreams really do come true,
I promise to dream of you.....



P.S: this one is doesn't have a name....so you could suggest....

Let your words be woven into dreams...

I loved the fact that reading this conjured vibrant images in my mind. Pretty and poetic.

Great work!
