Light Green Sparkles of Pixie Dust (Quatern)

by Kim   Jan 18, 2008


Light green sparkles of pixie dust
Waft from the oak trees on high
Sprinkling the leaves of elms and birch
With the beauty to chant and sigh

The cinders of love's great fire fall as
Light green sparkles of pixie dust
Illuminating the night with desire
A scented culmination of lust

Mother Nature smiles as she dreams
Of young creatures that she once knew
Light green sparkles of pixie dust
Encourage these dreams to come true

The bright orange moon in the magenta sky
Seeks the courage to do what she must
Replenishes the joy of the earth with
Light green sparkles of pixie dust

    Enchantingly beautiful Quatern, truly greatly written from the beginning to the end. I like the imagery that you created, it is so vivid. Your descriptions are so fantastic, I'm unable to express how much I enjoyed in this piece.
    My favorite stanza is:

    - The cinders of love's great fire fall as
    Light green sparkles of pixie dust
    Illuminating the night with desire
    A scented culmination of lust-

    Breathtaking!

    Keep writing!
    5/5 from me
