Dream Check

Last night I saw you flying

along a silvery moon beam

as I was busy tying

the loose ends of a dream

You appeared so completely free

portraying not a single care

I watched you soar above the tallest trees

wind blowing through your golden hair

The hands of time stood still

but yours spread gently with grace

While gliding down valleys and over hills

a radiant smile just covered your face

I felt a longing inside my chest

which pulled and tugged with all its might

It seemed a persistent unspoken request

to join you in your night’s delight

I couldn’t push the desire away

when all lately, cut deeper than a knife

so I accepted without the slightest delay

and flew into this dream of a conscious subconscious life







Love lingers on, even

 after much of hope has passed away

with time, and the earth seems

flat again; it’s sharp edges cutting deep

 Still, some continue to struggle

in contradiction of the calm

that peace desperately needs to breathe

Confrontation has no part in the nature

of love and peace, therefore

it is never true when one says

they are fighting a war for peace


There’s no time for romancing

but sometimes we’re still dancing

in the kitchen; laughing

like before, ’til our sides

are stitching, where nothing

seemed a chore, side by side

it was all fun and laughing

not just in the kitchen, smiles wide

no troubles to be ditching; dancing,

lots of dancing; time, not a thought

 when it led to later romancing


While you are waiting

for tomorrow

’til sorrow has passed

time is running away

Days gone, will never

come back

They lack the means

that’s the price they must pay

So, wait no longer

focus on now

and how to believe

 in the glory of today


The birdies are all here

distraction abounds

young hatchlings test wings

screeches, the sounds

We attempt to keep up

as time rushes past

but to stay in the moment

one need not move fast

All fall back, in this tree

of summer days gone by

 the new, shared with songs

’til again, some will fly


There’s a lot that

I don’t understand and

try as I might, my mind

never gets the upper hand

Too much time is spent

on trying to figure out

how to stand taller than

those shadows of all my doubts

I just wish everything

could be clear and clean

free from sorrow, void of pain

love, being all it would ever mean

We’ll pay the cost

by what we have lost

The feel of a definite shift

a change in the air; souls adrift

As if  breath has been sucked from our chest

we’re left wondering; is this real or just a test

 Everyone has a price to pay

some over time; others, all in one day

No one gets away
