Midsummer's dreaming

I wrote this one after midsummer's eve just gone. We start the night with a candle lighting ceremony. Everyone gets a tealight candle which is lit from the same 'parent' candle year after year and then makes a wish. My wish was "For the adult I've become and the child still tumbling around inside - may I continue to find joy in growth". I was then up all night thinking of circles and phoenix's, casting his name to ashes as I did so. By the end of the night, I was wondering around the backyard, shoeless and this is what I saw:

there was a path
painted in
crayola
rainbows

mismatched socks

winding
round
a bucket
once bright
fading in the sun

there was a path
dew-drop
footprints
drying
fading in the sun

I have cast wishes to flames
sparking
stars
shining

wings of pure hope

soaring to nights clear sky
