Dreamin'!


There are sleeping dreams and waking dreams
Sleeping dreams in which I travel to places that only exist in my mind
Sometimes paradise, sometimes places I thought I’d left behind
Sleeping dreams where I revisit places I’ve been, places long forgotten, places seldom seen
In sleeping dreams I meet people from long ago, people I love, people I know
In the long dark hours my mind runs free free to run and free to fly. In the long dark hours I touch the sky
In quiet moments of the day I often wander far away,into the dreamscape all around, oblivious to sight and sound
In waking dreams I often walk into a tree and bump my head

  2. Do not walk in my neighborhood. One wrong step into the street and it's pancake city. You went from the deep of the nether world to instant reality of real life. Not bad

  5. Oh the places I've traveled in my sleep. I love to dream just to see where I'll go next. Love that touch of reality at the end of your poem. Certainly not the way I would like to be awakened. Have a nice night.

  10. I like dreaming. But waking dreams can be followed through with, they give you great ideas to try. Sleeping dreams can get scary.After I have a bad one it can haunt me for ages, and I can't forget it.The scary part it they have sometimes come true.
    Great post as usual Keith.

  12. Cute ending. You have captured very well the power of dreams. Even awake they distract us. I often stumble while in the throes of daydreaming.I enjoyed this!
