An Elvin princess

Glows in the sun

As her skin reflects

Heaven’s gates undone.

She slips through the brambles

The sunsets on cue

Her hair is blown free

While laden with dew.

A smile catches her face

As a bird cries above

And the creatures pay homage

To the girl that they love.

In the sky an explosion

Of colors anew

Her hips sway in movement

As her arms gather too.

Then she opens them wide

Her laugh tinkles and shimmers

She moves like the brook

And her body, it shimmers.

As the sun falls still farther

She looks for the breeze where it blew

Then she turns on the path

And she beckons to you.

The sun finally goes down

In one golden drop

She whispers the wind

And you melt to your spot.

    Very good! I like it, moving into fantasy/fiction. Used to read quite a bit of it when i had time. Beautiful poem, great job with rythm/rhyme, not that it’s necessary but it went perfectly. What was the inspiration for this poem, might i ask?

    Thank you! Yes, I definitely enjoy fantasy/fiction as well. As far as inspiration goes, it was mostly nature. There is a canyon not far from my house that I some times walk in as my mind wanders. The day I thought of this poem I stopped in a little nook, underneath a tree. I have a somewhat wild imagination and I just started thinking about a girl that was so in tune with nature that she was almost apart of it, beautiful in a wild sort of way. This is what I imagined.

    Haha, I know how that is 😉 there’s a wheat field by my house where I like to go and think/watch the sunset.( one of few things tri cities has going for it: incredible sunsets) that’s neat though! Yes, I would agree you have a wild imagination… But if your mind is already free, you are already so very far ahead of many people! Lack of creativity/squelching other’s creativity is killing the church’s effectiveness. Anyways, beautiful poem, be a good one to set to a visual! Keep writing, always a pleasure to read your work – a break from the monotony of life!
