Little Girls Dream in Rainbows ~ NWCU Wednesday Wake-Up Call 9/26/12

 New World Creative Union's Wednesday Wake-Up Call
set before us this challenge to get our creativity flowing.
Take the following items and create something from them:
 prose, a poem, a sketch, a watercolor, et cetera.
 All of the following items must be a part,
 and distinguishable, of whatever you create:

1. The colors yellow, blue, and green
2. A triangle.
3. Peace
4. Lilacs.
5. A child.

I know. I know. I twisted a few of them into poetic license. :)

 Little girls’ dreams
are made of lilac
scented moons
and dancing under
a yellow sunflower sun.

Imagination is
the pillow they
lay their head upon
letting angel wings
carry them to visions
of apple green stars
and blue candy striped skies.

Silver triangle wind chimes
play nursery rhyme tunes
as giggles escape from
bubblegum smiles.

Night sings its lullaby of peace
as it rocks their cradle dreams
until daylight brushes their eyelids
to awaken them from sleep.

Beautiful Susie...your words being the calm, the images the imagination,and I'm whisked away to the world I so lovingly remember...hard in the real world to cling to that sense of innocense, and writes like this allow me to relive those moments...thank you :)
