Awakening

Awakening

Pitch black
and blinding
Darkness devours
Slowly suffocating
Suppressing breath
Starving lungs
Until that
prayed-for
moment
when,
gasping for air
oxygen finally
reaches the brain
Shaking
the spirit awake
to witness
day-breaking sun
and feel
its healing powers
Proving that
darkest moments
are always before
the dawn
The new day brings
hope for change

Imagining

Imagining

In dreams you come
and hide in the layers
of my mind
Nestled where
I feel your presence
and draw
from your strength
That I might find hope
with the infusion
of your love
coursing
through my veins
Knowing I am 
not always alone
I sleep deep
in your comfort

Floating

Floating

One look, one word
was all it took
to take the breath
from her body
Lifting her upwards
Floating in euphoria
High above
the kingdom
of her love
The clouds
at best trying 
to poke her
back to reality
Losing the battle
as she drifted
into her dreams

In Dreams

In Dreams

That rare moment
when you feel yourself
hanging between
sleep and awake
A euphoric state
you never want to end
Stopping and starting
doing a retake
 
Multiplying the climax
again and again
until sleep is triumphant
finally surrendering
The mind relaxes
and in dreams you travel
to another world
of visions for remembering

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

Dreams

Dreams

Once when things were perfect
We would fantasize hilariously
Make up stories deliriously
Listing every aspect
To live in that cottage by the sea
 
We had a goal in sight
Our plans were not nebulous
Nothing we did was tenuous
For what we wanted we would fight
If anything, we were fastidious
 
Our life full of adventure
Dreaming boldly and big
Until you acted like a pig
Wanting release from indenture
Our love story snapped like a twig
 
Dreams dashed and broken
But only temporarily
I made a decision arbitrarily
Another word never spoken
I now live in that cottage by the sea
