Peppermint Phoenix | A Poem by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Oh, forest portal,
guide me through
from here to there,
bright lights shining,
sound and images
during dreams alike.
We descended here
where stars are awash
with pixie dust tails
and crimson sprinkles
of diamond-dusted lips.
Riding upon the back
of a peppermint phoenix
rising through winter skies
whilst watching afar
from the crocus’ eye.
