Gently Onto Dreams

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so." William Shakespeare

"



Tonight 
I shall sleep
with the word 
rhapsody
softly cushioned
in my mind
I always loved that word

Featured Review

A variant of rhapsody stems from the noun rhapsode (a classical Greek professional performer of epic poetry) and the term "rhapsode" is derived from rhapsōidein, meaning "to sew songs together”. That’s my take on your short exquisite write – reflecting words sew together preparing for a good night’s sleep. Like this ….!

That word always reminds me of Queen and the Bohemian Rhapsody. Nicely said in a somewhat gentle relaxing tone.

Ah, well...I believe that night it was of hills and land of old, interestingly enough :)
it is a good word Poppy... besides what has been said below, I have always believed it to convey "hope", both musically as well as the word itself... RHAPSODY, it rolls off the tongue sensuously... and cushioned in a dream, what else can be said except sweet dreams Poppy... ;0)

your choice of music was really nice with this poem Poppy...

must also add that I was a bit confused by the Shakespeare quote though, more curious than anything else... anyway, just me always with the questions... lol but believe me I really loved this poem it was delightful...

Makes me think of prince ..... A mind placed in its own self finds beauty in music ..... To find peace that is relatable because it resides within

Really enjoyed this piece

Thank you SoloSolace :)
Sometimes random words will haunt my mind too! What I do is write down the word and any other word or phrases that pop into my head. I used to do this before I wrote certain poems, but now I do it on sticky notes (of all things). I think the small pieces of paper help me to consolidate my thoughts.

Wonderful, short poem

Words are treasures to be looked upon as gifts for the soul. Such an obliteration of beauty could only flow from your pen, Poppy!
