Basked in the warmth
of a wood burning furnace,
I slip into a butterfly gown
in the heart of winter
with flowers in my hair
and my vintage junk journal
filled with entries of fortune
I have bestowed upon myself

Dancing to the luminous sky
with each nightfall,
I create a sanctuary to
romance my soul as if
I were a bohemian princess,
holding moon magic by
dreamcatcher and the jingle
of my charm bracelet
