Playful Fantasy

The children's hour
of playful fantasy
as dusk begins to dim
the light of day
here, right near the end
of endless summer days

Liminal, between two realms
the magic then created
is flowing unabated
from the heart

When did we start
to lose this feel
invisible yet real
of fireflies
and fairies dancing

knowing we could think
just anything
and there it came
more real each time
we breathed it
in and out again

and joyful laughter rings
as night descends
for we refuse to let
the daytime hours end
oh no, not yet

for day and night
now touch in ecstasy
and dreams are born
in this the hour
of playful fantasy
