In Dreams

Summer Clouds 011

Dreams can take me to the stars,

to the moon and back again,

taking a magical carpet ride.

They can make me feel so fine,

take me to places I’ve never been.

While dreaming I can fly

and dance across the skies.

They can take me to where I long to be,

to places that I miss –

that stay in my memory.

In dreams I can ride on fluffy white clouds –

that like great big sailing ships go by.

Unleash all my feelings,

set my heart afire,

knowing that what I truly desire,

is there just beyond my reach.

In dreams I can be –

not just ordinary me,

but that special someone inside,

waiting to burst forth,

in a myriad of bright colors,

with inspiration and creativity.

I can achieve,

what I wish to achieve,

as long as I truly believe –

that fortune will smile upon me.

Like opening up my eyes,

early in the morn,

to see the brand-new dawn.

They can mingle with reality,

as long as I know –

never to give up on,

the dreams that lead me through this life –

that offer me so much,

as long as I keep reaching,

and beseeching for all –

that I am longing for.

So, I’ll go on dreaming,

scheming, for I know that someday,

all of those special ones will come true.

      Thank you Jackie. I have changed a well-known phrase to accommodate for when muses give similar inspirations – often poetic minds think alike, inspiration often strikes twice.

    “They can mingle with reality . . . ” What a wonderful line! Our dreams sometimes can be our reality. Nicely done, Rasma.

    Thank God for the dreamers of our world. For without them poets would struggle.Much of inspiration comes from them. Yours take us on a magical journey. Beautifully expressed dear poet.

      Thank you Vincent. I often think that when inspiration comes with dreams it is a most wonderful thing.
