Outside my window
is a magical world,
my inner child comes to life,
my imagination unfurls.
Two loving unicorns
walk together rubbing noses,
they enter into a magical garden
nibbling on the buds of young roses.
A frothy crystaline waterfall
out of a craggy mountain leaps,
the joy of it’s wreckless abandon
is enough to make me weep.
Across the way a forest looms
and a starry eyed fairy plays,
flitting about from flower to flower
weaving their magic from the sun’s rays.
I hear a sound that quickens my heart
and fastens my eyes to the sky,
a dragon colored in hues of the dawn
the ground shakes from his thunderous cries.
An enchantress floating down by the stream
with mischief on her mind,
she calls forth her lovers, trapped by her spell
her beauty has smitten them blind.
Pretty maidens lounging by a handsome bard’s feet
as he sings to them his songs,
tales of battles fought for true love
won by the souls of the strong.
A knight in shining armor
climbs onto his horse and saddle,
for his princess he rides hard through the night
to save her he will fight the fiercest battle.
At last I retreat from my window
and reality settles back in,
but the wonder and magic stay with me
Till my window I visit again.
