~ Unikorn Ride ~

The fan of warm wind as he galloped by
The burst of music, the whinnied cry
But I cannot ride him no matter how hard I try
As he dances just out of reach

And I hold out my hand for him to scent me
And patiently wonder what his next move might be
That I am no danger will he finally see
And let me stroke his main

But better than that he offers a ride
He helps me to climb and sit him astride
And he gallops away with the birds at our side
Across the wide blue sky

A soft nudge disturbs my gentle repose
Yawning I wake but don’t want to know
That to ride on a unicorn was dreampt I suppose
As Mummy moves me from the rug to my bed

The dreams of children inspired by stories and bedside rugs

Enjoy! ♥

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~
