There is more magic
beneath a canopy of wildflowers,
a harvest that dabs
a meadow with color and dance,
than most tend to admit.
One must only capture a moment
to spy beyond each green stem,
to discover the grace of folly:
a clutch of dragon eggs
painted as jewels
or a sylvan elf,
its silver skin
laced with sleep and peace.
S. Thomas Summers poems are inspired by daydreams, gazing through a window, stepping through a wood. I believe there’s a place where these dreams gently grace reality, making the impossible quite possible, the intangible very tangible. I do my best to visit that place as often as I can.
