Arcadia Revisited

Return with me
to the safe embrace
of mountains,
a poetic place
where sky kisses sea.
Come sail with me
above crashing waves,
to sandy bays
with hidden caves,
an unspoiled wilderness,
where mermaids lilt silvery melodies,
descant to the ocean’s harmonies,
in praise of the exquisiteness
of Arcadia.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Fireblossom Friday: It’s Only A Paper Moon

Fireblossom’s challenge is to write a new poem or some flash fiction that makes us believe in something that isn’t real. She says no autobiographical tell-alls this time! We are supposed to make it up out of whole cloth but I’m short of time today, so I’ve taken ideas from an old poem and re-worked them.
