Sunlight streams through branches tall
Dust motes dancing in the gentle breeze
She walks the path they forged alone
The only sound bluebird’s sweet summer song
Shadows dance to the rhythm of her soul
Flowers blossom in mid summer’s noon
Scents drift violet shades of longing
Her thoughts crowding, jostling to be heard
A wandering wind sighs upon her cheek
As her peace once more descends
A whisper of a smile adorns her lips
Her prince not yet found her still
Until that day she’ll meander down this path
To loves sweet siren call
Smiling as her heart sends out a signal
And his ghost returns to fall.
