Longing

Purple scented fragrance
Wafting by on a lilac breeze
Glow of a dimming fire
Through a frosted window
Crackle of blue blue ice
Under my bare feet
Tugging of heart strings
Played like a violin
Fingers touching
Something soft like skin
Red wine caress
On my trembling cheek
Sun beams filtered
Through dappled leaves
Glittering rain drops
Leaving shimmering trails
Velvety moss tree bark
Scented with long ago
Trips down memory lane
Tip-toeing into dark corners
Fragments of childhood rhymes
Shimmering like fireflies
Willow-the-wisps
Glimmering and burning out
Yearning like a fire brand
Barely held in check

       Longing

For some nameless song
Repeated again and again

       Purple scented fragrance
       Wafting by on a lilac breeze…

Artist's Description

Someone asked me recently what I wish for. I didn’t really have an answer. This comes as close to an answer as I can think of….

Here’s the illustration to go with it:
