Carefully Crafted

A heavy scented celestial shine
hangs low in magical delicacy,
ripples communicate with the Divine
while imagination becomes airy,
tropical beauty alters her hemline
as cool flames catch on a wind's smile warmly,
lilac clouds fashion themselves in the night,
minds under construction share candlelight.

Paradise is open for dreams; fragrant,
to wash soft language within its cool shell,
sensual shimmers so wild, so buoyant,
laugh existence across shaded pastel,
invisible life under the current
chase grins up and down the river's stairwell,
wishes blow kisses to people unseen
then float off to explore another scene.

An invitation to call is rustled
with exotic love's delicious blue taste,
this freedom can not ever be bottled
so please wet fine feathered wings to be graced
by visions that are constantly juggled
below artistic themes; perfectly placed,
and a wave of farewell now is lifted,
a poem has now been carefully crafted.

A triple octive poem.
