wanted: divine intervention

by Kyle Anne Kish

if she could only dream

her cocoon would
unfold like the buds
on the trees, unwrapping
slowly to show
the world a vision
beyond the realm
of beauty.

her eyes would
sprout flowers
with a spark
of golden rod
around the centers
and a slice of good luck
thrown in for spice.

if she could only dream

her mouth would
be lined with rubies
creating a spontaneous
smile, capable
of shining the tarnish
off any silver platter
within a 100 mile radius.

her brain would
mirror both her inside
self and outside self
within every being
of her body, so the flow
and ebb of time would never
grip her like a harness.

if she could only

.... dream ....

"if she could only dream her cocoon would unfold like the buds on the trees, unwrapping slowly to show the world a vision beyond the realm of beauty." Just beautiful, Kyle Ann. I love the imagery in this piece. Especially the first stanza. Magic, honestly. -Kat :)

An intervention I think we all wish for in our own way Kyle Anne, and worth preserving as you've done.

Good dreams are such a rarity in my life. The descriptions in this piece are so beautiful. The picture is a lovely added touch!

Seems she is doing just that! You've caught so well the spirit of "flight of fancy", wishful thinking, perhaps even unrealistic expectations.

"if only" the proverbial "if only".. you have captured the frustration well. thanks for sharing. .aloha
