My heart has wings
To sail the wave of sleepless dreams
My heart has wings
To follow where the moonlight sings
And dance a path of silver beams
I journey through the starlit gleams
My heart has wings

For Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge: a rondelet using the prompt word ‘journey’ inspired by Odilon Redon’s painting.
