(Poem) Unicorn

Majestic footfalls raise fairy dust
Along the horizon
Where refractions of light
Bounce off magical water droplets
Replenishing the earth
Bringing forth flora and fauna
As the spectrum of color
Acts as a backdrop
For the pristine, white beasts
Galloping in formation.
Heads tilt forward
Their pearlescent horns
Navigating their way.

The little boy
Squeezed tightly his father’s hand
Held his breath in anticipation
Of their ascent to the clouds
On the rainbow road.
The father looked down
Smile creeping on his face
Looking up again
At his troop of horses
He nodded in agreement.

Magical creatures,
They are.
