Watercolor Dreams

















Leave me to drift in watercolor days,
as I glide the current, slipping away
o’er rippled reflections of soft Autumn hues,
I steal to the place where there’s only you.

Content in this Eden where Morpheus calls,
the daylight fades darker and soon night will fall—
just leave me to linger a little while more
afloat in illusion, away from the shore .

  9. I see and hear this as a love poem, expressing the warmth and comfort of lying with the one you love. But maybe that's just me. No matter what, this is just lovely, Gin.
