Summer nights

“Oh, the summer night has a smile of light and she sits on a sapphire throne.”

Summer nights

Summer nights,
pearls on royal spread,
I hear you in secret fogs and lulls,
when the winds color my dreams
in turquoise.

Summer nights,
shells breathing warmth,
I feel you in imaginary ripples,
where the memories glow
in ecstasy.

There, in the emerald world of silence,
jellyfish and peach sea flowers whisper.
There, with Poseidon’s gold, unseen and lost
lie the leftovers of enchantment,
the fantasies of rainbows and you.
