Inspiration of the Week 7

Welcome to The poetry Palace and "Inspiration of the week". There are so much talent wthin the blogsphere and this week I have visited a blog that I am sure will inspire the others talented poets. I am Chimnese and it's a pleasure to be with you.

Today's Chosen Poem I share with you
is a poem by Charles L Mashburn


Like a Pearl Set in Gold 

It has been said
     One in ten thousand moons
     fall silently from a daytime sky
          to touch a rainbow
          and there to glisten
               like a pearl set in gold
                    resting upon a pale blue cotton dress

Some nights when I am restless
     Tossing and turning
     and wondering why sleep won’t come
          I turn to find you sleeping
          so peacefully at my side
                Moonlight through the curtain gap
               laying soft across your shoulder

Troubles and worries fade
as I gaze lovingly at you
     and realize how blessed I am
     to have found this treasure
          A proverbial rainbow’s end

Peace washes over me
     As I settle back
          and smile at my good fortune

Sheets rustle
and I feel your hand move to my chest
     Sweetly, you whisper, I love you
     then your deep breathing resumes

A tear falls as I give thanks
     For sleepless nights that let me see
          The moon touching the rainbow
               That lies sleeping next to me
