Fairy Dreams

A fairy comes to visit
me in my dream
together we eat
berries with cream.

We sail upon
a vanilla lake,
our raft is made
of chocolate cake.

Together we have
so much fun at play
as we sing and dance
the night away.

What do you dream about at night?  Can you write your own poem about one of your dreams?  Have fun writing.

Today is Poetry Friday.  You can find more poetry at Books 4 Learning.  Enjoy the round up.

May all your dreams be big and happy.


  1. That second stanza with its delicious visuals! I can totally picture a chocolate cake raft on a vanilla lake. :-)

    1. I often dream about food. Imagine the maze you could make if you lived inside a watermelon! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. We need more gluten free options for poetry! I am wanting to join you on that chocolate cake raft! (I'll have to stick with the berries and cream, I guess!)
    Okay, here's my dream poem...

    Cat Nap

    While I slept
    a feline came
    And thought my nose
    was quite the game!
    He batted it
    until I woke;
    Then I found
    It was a poke
    From my book
    upon my face,
    Not a cat playing
    games of chase.

    Have a beautiful day, Joy! Keep the shiny side up!

    1. You've doubled my pleasure.
      Tripled my fun.
      A comment and poem
      rolled into one!

      Yes, I fell asleep last night with my book on my face too.
      Keep the bike vertical, Donna.

  3. Such delicious dreams you've been having! How clever to use them to create delicious poetry. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Molly. I appreciate your comments.

      I wonder what would happen with:
      I'm swimming in sauerkraut?
      Diving in vinegar.

      Wonder if I could get that to rhyme.
      Thanks for getting me thinking, such a poem would have me stinking.

  4. Delightful! I could give you a guest appearance on my blog if you are interested, with this poem in place of honor.

    1. Sounds like fun. Let's do it. What do you need?

    2. I'll copy your poem, put up a photo and link to your site. Thanks! :-)

  5. Of course you dream of fairies, Joy. :) I have had terrible dreams since my father's death last month... I could really do with some fairies, so please send them. xo

    1. Have you been following Margaret Simon's posts on her safari in Tanzania? You should plan a safari to see the animals you wrote about. Time for something new. A trip should do the ticket.
      Sorry for your loss. My mom has been gone for many years now and we still have the best conversations.

      My mother is a fairy.
      My father is a gnome.
      No matter where they tarry,
      in my heart they're always home.

  6. There seems to be quite a bit of fairy dust around today, Joy, and am not surprised at your visit, too. Love that "raft of chocolate cake".

    1. I'm glad you saw the connection too. That happens with the round up sometimes--a theme will pop up.
      I enjoyed your tribute to Jack.

  7. I love your fairy poems. Always have and always will.

  8. I've been immersed in my library's fairy village for the past two months, so I appreciate reading your fairy poem.

  9. I was rereading a story I wrote that features the Flour Fairy--"not the FLOWER Fairy, Ruby, the Flour Fairy." I amused myself...but would readers enjoy that? She's definitely not gluten free!

  10. Your poem is dreamy...and sweet! A fairy delight! =)

  11. Here is the post on my site: https://friendlyfairytales.com/2016/07/29/fairy-dreams-by-joy/

    I hope you like it. Feel free to join in on the comments if you want. I hope some people drop by and visit you. Best, Brenda
