Dreamer of Dreams

As he lay dreaming,

his muses were at play,

they crept into his mind –

with colorful flowers and butterflies.

 

So much to delight the eye,

as he slept a smile was on his face

and the sweetest melodies –

filled his ears.

 

The poet slept on,

unaware that a new inspiration was  born,

it came in the dead of night

and left in  the early morning light.

 

When the sun broke his sleep,

bleary eyed he sat and wondered,

where did this sudden inspiration,

fill his very heart and soul.

 

He picked up a pen and notepad

and it was as if his hand,

knew more than his mind

as the paper filled.

 

It filled with thoughts,

of meadows of wild flowers,

the highest mountains

and lovely waterfalls.

 

On paper was created,

a world that seemed like a paradise

and the poet read in delight –

while the muses clapped and cheered.

 

They had worked the whole night through

and the poet had dreamed wondrous dreams.

Now he had written from the heart –

expressing his innermost thoughts.

 

Oh, he knew it was the work of his muses

and he loved each one,

the one that created, the one that loved

and the one that made his dreams a reality.

    Oh how I love this poem, Rasma. I can almost see the poet’s wonderment and the glee of the Muses. Lovely work.

    I so relate and that very scenario often mine in waking with words upon my tongue, quickly scribbled for a morning view. The beginnings of several books of mine were written in my slumber hours. Nicely penned and phrased Rasma.
