A World of Fantasy

Updated on July 7, 2017

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Fantasy is what takes over.

when you fall in love.

The world suddenly seems so different

and you find that everything -

turns topsy-turvy.

The sun shines so much brighter,

even rainy days,

have a magical feel.

Where raindrops,

become shining pearls,

hanging on everywhere.

So many wonderful things,

set your heart reeling -

it’s such a great feeling.

Walking down the street,

you feel as light as air,

doing a bit of dancing –

as you go walking along.

Like Alice in Wonderland,

when you take my hand,

the colors of the world,

all shimmer and shine.

Everything seems brand new,

the clouds in the sky -

become great big sailing ships.

Song birds up in the trees,

start singing love’s concertos

and all of the old love songs –

seem to make your heart take wing.

Your world spins about and about,

each day seems like a new beginning.

So let your heart be light and gay,

let the fantasy in,

let love take over –

your world will be full of red and white clover.

There is no feeling that is better,

than when it’s you and me,

so let us be -

in love for now and forever more.

        What a beautiful description of falling in love, Rasma. I haven't heard that song in quite a long time. Thanks for the reminder of it. :)

        Falling in love is a bit like sky diving. I guess it depends on the person! Nice contribution.

        One of my favorites by the Supremes! Your Poem is pure truth, from first word to last! Nothing else compares to Love! Sweet & Wonderful......I remember it well.

        When love grabs a hold of you, your world takes on different colours and shine. It is another world; and it is surreal, at first. And then? reality takes its place.Lovely poem.
