you are my beacon at dusk, when the worlds colors change

at dusk
when the day crashes downward
into the depths of yesterday
you are my lightpost
a sunbeam and guide
as the night explodes into the sky
like a crazy madman
consuming my world with deceptive lights
and all-consuming darkness
you are my beacon
like a signal fire
beaming from venus
showing me the way through the dark clouds
to true love
to real love, the kind that is not blind
that can see the worlds colors change
at the horizon
where our auras meet

you are my lighthouse
the place where my soul resides
when the world is exploding

not a new poem – this was paired with a photo that i am removing, but want the poem to stay…


light, love, support

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.
