Going through a bit of writer’s block, I decided to try using one of the prompt words from WordPress Daily Post at https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/
I was intrigued by the prompt word, “elusive” and so was inspired to write about that in a new poem:
I sometimes dream of a place
So peaceful and serene;
A vision which only
My mind’s internal eye can see.
Clear and ever vivid blue
Is the vaulted, stretching sky
As the glowing sun beams
From its destined home on high.
With the ground adorned
In a carpet of lush green grass
Unmarred by any intruding footprints
And the absence of a meandering path.
Statues of towering trees
Swished and swayed beneath
The foliage of rustling leaves.
No other near or distant sound
Met my ever straining ears.
No other hints of movement
Or voices were detected or heard.
The vibrant image lasted perhaps
A few seconds at the most;
Like the fleeting appearance
Of a shimmering ghost.
Just a simple, tranquil place
Where I can quietly be
If only for a moment in the night
In a reoccurring dream.
