Wishes

I’m on holidays in the middle of nowhere.

I have books.

I have my computer.

I have a heart that wishes for silence and the soft smiles of love.

I will sip some tea and close my eyes.

Sleep

If sleep could touch my cheek,

I would ask for her slender hand

a thousand times.

If sleep did fall upon me now,

I dare not wake.

No.

I dare…not…

The Wish

It would be okay,

I believe,

If you were to make a wish

and put it in your pocket.

It would be okay,

especially so,

if the wish was sweet.

For a wish made carefully

is often much sweeter

if forgotten

(in a pocket)

and found

somewhere along the drifting line

of life.

Somewhere lovely,

of course.

Somewhere really quite lovely,

I would think.

Dreams

Will I always dream of life beyond the creaky bones of now?

The other side of the hill will call again, no doubt, whispering: this is what your life could be.

And though my heart is full, will I always dream of something more?

Of the life beyond the life?

The echo of the here.

The shadow of the now.

Dreams are always somewhere else, aren’t they?In a place that doesn’t exist.

Shall I creep towards that place, knowing there is no destination?

Knowing the birth of a dream will only end it and call forth the birth a new one?

Knowing the dream train will never ever reach the station?

Dissolved

I am a body.

But I am dissolved

by the blinding light

of destiny.

Here I spin,

longing to escape

the heavenly dream

that hurtles through the soft

and quick

of me.

Catch me, hold me still.

Oh, the aching,

catch me.

Hold

me

still.

Darling Day 28. Darling Dreamers

In the arms of the rippling blue night,

the darling dreamers

sing

to the Gypsy song of yesterday.

And with a gaze:

tomorrow?

And with a kiss:

yes.

Darling Day 2: Darling Is The Dream

Darling is the dream of waking up beside you,

knowing the world is perfectly still

for one single breath of mine.

And when sleep comes once more, meet me in the sky between us;

hold me by that darling river of ours,

until the sunrise brings you back to my day.

affection blur close up couple

Darling.

Darling is the dream of you.

Darling is the everlasting dream

of you.

To Dream

Where is this life that I cannot catch,

that springs and curls like the loveliest vine

around the spirit of me.

The sun falls on my back, and I run toward the open ocean.

The sand is warm between my toes, and I am on my way home.

To a new life.

A new hope.

A new dream:

to be all that I can be.

Love. Creativity. Inspiration.

Here I am.

Here I am.

Princess

When I was a princess,

all I wanted

was to be a girl.

Let Them Come

To the weary traveler of life:

No wonder you are tired.

You have been running

for so long

away from the dreams that chase you.

Let them come.

Let them fall into you

and let the river have them do

whatever they will do

to your ready and waiting heart.
