Magical infinite plain,
endless as indigo skies,
moonlight floats with no restrain,
allows emotions to fly.

In an ocean dense and wide,
broader than the universe,
lives pure hope that cannot hide,
recharges and reasserts.

Midnight black colored plateau,
made so dark it almost shines,
bright souls reap what true hearts sow,
velvety fog is refined.

Joyful laughs fuel up this drive,
ends dull fears, they pass with time.
Skip, hop, jump then take the dive,
dance around to inner chimes.

Glitz reflects a rare jewel,
radiates just like a star.
Build a world where real love rules,
devotion runs near and far.

Winded lovers become one,
no known sight could beat this view.
Soundly sleep with the warm sun,
formed to comfort me and you.

Moonwashed Weekly Challenge #162 – September 26, 2023
Prompt – Velvety


A promise to stay,
forces actions to sway.
False hopes still remain,
tender hearted from pain.

To walk all alone,
heavy feet feel like stones.
Memories hold time,
dance to silent wind chimes.

Live life nonchalant,
gain all needs but no wants.
Difficult to know,
all the power thoughts own.

Regrets drive minds mad,
guilts lament what hands had.
Ego pushes starts,
true love never departs.

Learn how to accept,
allow soul to connect.
Pure smiles light days up,
to fill all empty cups.

Bittersweet farewell,
no more reasons to dwell.
Blink away old views,
essence forever true.

Broken hinges,
power strolls.
Greed infringes,
lessons scroll.

Sugar wishes,
shine on goals,
repair glitches,
to fill holes.

Full view mixes,
results show.
Hollow fixes,
wealth soon grows.

Scratch deep itches,
self control.
Find clear niches,
fill lost roles.

Build strong bridges,
pay the toll.
Smooth out ridges,
future rolls.

Climb up inches
pave clear roads.
Conquer flinches,
solid mold.

Gleam with riches,
choices glow.
Faithful switches,
help hopes flow.

Velvet kisses,
comforts soul.
Sews and stitches,
new and whole.

Strength in silence goes unheard,
swiftly slices with no words.
Scream out loudly with deep looks,
reads each thought like a good book.

Blinded eyes still see beauty,
screens away hidden cruelty.
Focuses on what will be,
count out goals to sets hopes free.

Negatives fall on deaf ears,
quickly diminishes fears.
Searches beyond vibrant sounds,
synch with tones that feel profound.

Well known scents fill up the air,
warmest hues still linger there.
Absorbs each joyful warm tear,
senses pure light as it nears.

Instant numbness with one touch,
new sensation is too much.
Stimulates within each soul,
dusty fears shed, fall, and go.

Releases all anchored doubt,
positive vibes spread about.
Feel powerful and complete,
spreads pure love throughout heartbeats.

Extended your hand,
when I was alone,
you held me so tight,
then swallowed me whole.

I laid in your heart,
then made it my home,
lit a bright candle,
to then watch it glow.

You traveled through space,
navigated time,
made life a movie,
I laughed at your crimes.

I tugged at your heart,
whispered all you felt,
ignited your sparks,
made the hot wax melt.

Lived your adventure,
peeked through your wide eyes.
Till one fated day,
I tugged at your side.

Exposed profound thoughts,
we laughed till we cried.
Clutched to each other,
made days into rides.

Apart we dissolve,
entwined so solid.
Your chest my pillow,
offers tears solace.

Form a fairyland
where we both fly free,
together we stand,
true love guaranteed.

Celestial Moment

Sun sets sweetly, with a yawn,
winks to greet the break of dawn.
Smiles upon the end of day,
gorgeous sight on full display.

Honey covered gingered sky,
watches as wild birds fly high.
Aimlessly dance in the air,
whistle loudly without care.

Shadowed beams highlight dark winds,
earth stands still as dim minds spin.
Walks on water, twinkles bright,
magically lights the night.

Amber painted view above,
makes hearts instantly feel love.
Embraces with a warm hug,
feels so cozy, safe, and snug.

Golden tinted glittered breeze,
awesome joy enlaced with peace.
Serene vision, eyes absorb,
bubble of hope in vast orb.

Autumn nights sway the proud trees,
nature’s beauty flows so free.
Hopeful outlooks are believed,
clarity is well received.

Prompt – Gingered Sky

Tea Break

Daydreams form,
great fantasies,
flip the norm,
drink canopies.
Downward pour,
feeds hungry cup,
sweet scents soar,
flavor steams up.

Great design,
loyal and true.
Draws no lines,
Kettle floats,
without a care,
magic gloats,
tempts hearts to dare.

Herbs compile,
fills day with grace.
A bright smile,
lands on my face.
Absorb view,
while sipping tea,
Savor hues,
of what will be.
