Colored [07-16-01]

I believe in fairy tales..
that somewhere, someone
just whispered a visible melody
and made the wind shiver.

The mist wraps softly
around a crying child;
he stands alone
with ghost-trail tears.

Somewhere, the unspoken
lyrics of a sultry song cascade
around the feet of a curious girl.
Her giggles tickle the brush beneath.

A lullaby whistles dully
in my ear as I dream. The
hum of an air conditioner drones
somewhere beside me,

transformed to the soft chant
of a fairy fire-dance beyond.
