Moonlit Dreams

The night mist dances

slowly, gracefully

over the  darkening land.

She knows her job wellnight faries6a

and as night deepens

she quickens in her journey.

There is much to do before dawn

on arrival she wastes no time

soothing, calming and inspiring

each to dream their beautiful dreams

and as peaceful slumber arrives

she smiles and swirls away

sharing more of her moonlit dreams.

Breaking the Cycle

Children aren’t born

with prejudice and hate,

but when raised with it

they tend to emulate.

Then prejudice once more

gets passed on down.

Until tolerance and education

start turning it around.
