Dream Life’s Pantomime

Life’s Pantomime

Life's Pantomime

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The beauty of life’s quest

departs…

when the light of a dream turns

to dark.

 

Dissipating

into the squalor of shadows…

where monsters wait

to feed

on the fallen seeds of hope.

 

Don’t let them go…

don’t fold into the bitterness

that grows…

from the noise of an inner-silence

chattering with regret.

 

Dream wider than the paradigm

created by your mind…

begin to imagine

the marvel you will find…

 

Believe

in the power of life’s pantomime.

 

So, play

play out your destiny

play your unique tune…

play the beauty of a ‘Claire de Lune’

but let not your dreams

fade…

 

From the light of a promised moon.

I have always enjoyed writing as a creative and healing outlet. Although I am not a formally trained poet, I have found a natural inclination to explore its remarkable power and beauty.

I gravitate towards rhyming verse, free of any constraints, and strive to create an experience through sound, flow, and imagery. I am a writer at Allpoetry.com. and a proud Mother of two beautiful boys.

Thank you for visiting.

    I agree with the darkness always trying to overcome the light, to destroy our dreams, our goals and our destiny. For some of us, its tougher than others to shed the dark-side as its a constant battle. I have learned to plunge ahead, put the past to rest and not to let it be all consuming. Its been a struggle, yet I am making headway. This work is very meaningful and offers hope to those who wallow in the muck and mire of uncertainty. I truly believe in your words here (Dream wider than the paradigm) I will continue to dram my poetic friend.

    A poignant write Mel, its so easy to abandon our dreams when discouraged. But life is filled with wonder and beauty if we choose to see it, seek its solace. Lovely verse filled with great phrasing and imagery, you pen so well. A beautiful fluid write Mel. Nicely done.
