Dreams

Poetry Jam has the challenge to write about the word "dream".


Dream

a dream is what is not but is
though all the world is in a tiz
I enter into dream of day
and let my mind in there allay
all fears and worries, roiling strife
and cut through foggy seams of life
and I return much saner, for
my quiet time with secured door
reopening I am renewed 
a world made fresh each leaf a’dewed
and I can see more clearly when
in dreams I’ve taken Peace again

    1. Yes, dreams as a topic and the dreams themselves are multi-faceted.

  8. I do like the idea of choosing to enter a dream during one's waking time. I think this is a good idea. Children often use their imagination to escape. Why not adults!

  9. Day dreaming is a great activity. As a teacher I often observed that some students were daydreaming.

  10. Donna,

    A dream can be a haven of escape from the ills surrounding our usual position in life...Even a brief daydream!!
