A flower of the midnight garden,
I am cocooned in dreams and lullabies.

My petals are words opening to the moon
(aching to be born) –

The solitude of night is home,
The silence is sweetness welling
anointing me with its perfume.

Here I am, a thought, a bud
waiting to be
beneath the vast expanse of galaxies.

I am mist that rises
when daybreak comes.


Ah, it’s been a while.

  1. HI, Gina. Thanks. I am also glad to be able to join this time:-) I don’t know how often I can be here though. Poems (and some extra time) are quite difficult to come by these days. 🙂

  2. Absolutely beautiful. I especially love these words:

    “My petals are words opening to the moon
    (aching to be born) –”
    This is a poem…waiting to be born….words the petals…the thought…the bud….and out of the mist daybreak comes.
    So very glad to see you back Imelda.

  3. Hi, Imelda! Nice to “see” you again. I enjoyed your poem, especially the comparison of silence being perfume, and the image of petal-words “opening to the moon / (aching to be born)”

    1. Hi, Jenna. 🙂 Thank you for the kind and warm words. I did miss writing and blogging. Hopefully, I can sustain a more regular blogging sched. 🙂

    1. Hi, Mr. Teemley. I hope that you and your loved ones are doing well. Take care. One day soon, we will all be enjoying the lovely outdoors again.

    1. Oh, by all means, borrow them. 🙂 🙂
      On a serious note, more than half of those followers are inactive now, I suppose.

  4. I really like your beautiful blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon.

  5. Wow, what a wonderful poem!
    I don’t know if it’s on purpouse, but your name, Imelda, means “the lovely” in Quenya, a language created by J.R.R. Tolkien.
