Floating lanterns


A painted picturesque scene
Imprinted on every partaking gaze
Such a breathtaking sight to behold
As each lantern is set ablaze

Shimmery mirrored images
Alight the indigo waters
Each ripple of dancing light
A symbol of celebratory honor

Thousands of them dotting
A glimmering midnight blue sky
The reflection vividly clear
In hundreds of awestruck eyes

The night now becoming just a memory
Embedded deeply within every heart
Never to be forgotten
By every blessed soul who has taken part
