Fairy Lights Float

Fairy lights float
Guiding no fairies
But instead my dreams
To come to life

Each lantern a beacon
Of hope
Of opportunity
Of an idea yet to be written

If I were so small
That I could flutter along their path
I would skip lightly
And believe wholly
In the world that was to be illuminated
By my own imagination

Iโ€™m hoping poetry is accepted in any form, even one written by a scientist masquerading as a poet. I hope my mask hasnโ€™t fallen to the floor; trampled.
