Are you out there somewhere
in your faraway land
where stars twinkle at night
and fairy tale wishes float on air.
Are you the princess of the manor
or the queen of the stately castle
all alight for the party of life,
belle of the ball,
masked and beautiful.
Are you the woman who shops at the stands
on streets of vendors, fruit and vegetables
and fresh bread steaming from corner store doors.
Are you the magical witch casting spells
of loveliness on all you meet
and those who strain to hear
your wise words and laughter.
Are you the girl with the dreams of good things,
of deserts and oceans and sand between toes,
are you the whimsical child who sends love filled
With smiles and joy
the gracious soul that gives this world light,
the lantern, the keeper of the moon
the goddess of all that is beautiful.
