He Never Dared to Dream

All these treasures,
the beautiful, devoted wife,
the mother of his children,
on the deck of the hilltop house
overlooking his adopted valley
against a rainbow sherbet sunset,
and the Delfonics are playing
off in the distance
as the Yorkshire terriers
gnaw and wrestle at his feet,
and he is overcome with giggles.

All this,
and he gets to sleep with her too.

  1. Mosk, love poem right back at me! This is delicious in every detail. Loved the sherbet sunset and "he gets to sleep with her, too." Perfect ending, nice little kiss.
