A Moon Beam For Open Link...

I tried to pick
A moon beam
From the rug
Where it lay
Slipped right
Through my fingers
Went on its merry way

I thought of fairies
Star dust
About children
Who have an octopus
For a pet
Rainbows
And wishes

I clapped my hands for Tinkerbell
I searched for the rainbow
I gathered stardust in buckets
I cried for the children
Then with only love
And a little magic
I caught a moonbeam
For Open Link at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
 Inspired by Brian Miller's Who Can Tame The Tides//"

Can't be caught with fingers, that's for sure.

I smiled when i read this because last week i tried to pick something off the blanket in the dark and it was a tiny slit of moonbeam.. i thought it was a white thread..

Oh, the hope... I'm always enchanted by art that takes the seemingly impossible, describes it as such, and then shows how (under the right circumstances) the impossible is not impossible at all. I love hope for breakfast. ;-)

Beautiful. The moonbeam is a beautiful offering - and "crying for the children"… just broke my heart.

I love the playful feel of your words~ It is sad, when we can't capture magic, but we can see it!
