Mirrored Dreams – Poem of the Month – December, 2019

Mirrored Dreams

Today I dream
staring at the
mirror lake
I watch as a family
of eider duck
scores the glass surface
The serenity
of movement
in contrast to the
laboring below

Wishing for that
same veneer
of self confidence
While inside
quaking with fright
To project one side
while experiencing
the other
The distinction seemingly
imperceptible 

My eyes look
to the drifting clouds
Where faces are
formed in the
constant motion
Colors changing 
predicting
the inevitability 
of rainfall
ready to release

Continuing my reverie
to the soft green
hillsides where
I imagine the
Purple heather
blanketing the
gentle slopes
dotted with wild
bushes of 
golden gorse

Lost in the beauty
of the scene
Feeling peaceful
The elements
filling me with
inspiration
and hope
As always
I find answers
in my dreams
