A MIDSUMMER NIGHT - A TALE INSPIRED BY JIM BRANDANO’S PHOTO

 Honored Yet Again By Jim Brandano 




I told Jim the other day that we have a mutual admiration society here. I follow his blog religiously and he never misses to visit mine and leave a comment. So when he said he wanted me to write something to go with his picture I was taken aback. I was thrilled and felt honored. I was not sure I would be able to write something because most of what I write is what I feel. I cannot write unless I am touched by something. I was anxious to see what Jim had in mind, what kind of picture he would send. But the moment I saw the picture I fell in love with it. The first thought that came to my mind was Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and the wedding of Titania and Oberon. The picture had such a dream like quality to it that I wrote the poem effortlessly. Thank you Jim for believing I could write something for your photo. I hope I have been able to do justice to Jim’s photo of Antonio and Wendy. This is also a tribute to them and their soon to be born baby. God bless you.You can see the post in Jim's blog too (http://jpweddingphotograpy.blogspot.com)

A MID SUMMER NIGHT
A mid summer’s night…
Above the sky like a cape
Is adorned with thousands
Of twinkling gems…
The moon looks down
As pure and white
Like never before…
The forest is alive tonight.
Silky winged fairies
Light the forest night
With their tiny wands
Every bush and shrub
Glow with a magical sheen
With tiny lanterns
Hung by elves…
The air is filled
With the sweet scent
Of blossoms that
Dance to the
Sway of the trees
Every creature
Every living being
Await in awe…
She glides towards him
Her Antonio
Handsome and regal
She is Wendy
In her gossamer gown
Beautiful almost ethereal
Their eyes meet…
The moment is electrifying
A hush descends…
Only the tinkle of bells
As they are gently
Caressed by the faint breeze
And in the distance
The strings of a harp
Strum this magical night
He takes her in his arms
And as his lips descend
On her upturned mouth
The world is enraptured
As it witnesses
Another union…
Another coming together of one
In mind, body and soul
Of two lovers
