Dream Catcher

By Jennifer Cahill

Sterling silver jewels 
are pendulous on her ear-lobes

as she shakes her head,
as they sit by a river lit up

with a shimmer of man-made light.
Salmon with peach colors is a feast

for the sky above them; 
yet her new diamond is tossed

into this dove tinted water, 
with orange and deep yellows-

the celestial sphere
becomes an adorned queen;

she wears her crown of diamonds
as a half moon is punched

into this empyrean, 
and a moon bow is tossed to them.
