DREAMS OF WINGS

DREAMS OF WINGS

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror






Air bends against my body


touching willows in the wind


The Stream curves below


Drifting and then pulls back again


constant movement a weave and thread


Shades of white and grey expand


Faces inside are tempted and hide


This divine right shines the sense bright


dark sky chanters herald in melodic design




human limitations sleep quietly


perched inside


exposed by an unkind light


Waking truth and departure from flight


joined with fallen others lost in descent


Our plea a mere bellow in the darkest midnight


a vision of disappearing sights


Leaving alone the moon to it's glow


fallen others before us behold


lighting a land of green with gold




Countless stars dismount and bend in honor


Stardust falls like snow lighting the road


This noble salute from heaven emulates for evil or good


Mesmerized and holding flight as a mystery told


Pulling undone this true right of second nature


It is the prize deep inside or a map to a treasure


falling further to find


a world stacked sky high in decline


the dark executioner waiting times unwind


Complete with sweets from a demon queen


ruler of vengeance and anger


Mere weapons for hire


Aimed to rob the earth of color




We fall whispers of a feather seeking prayer


Reaching for the key to grace's door


Blinded by tales of heavenly desire


And a tricky devil living under the floor


Terry D’Arcy-Ryan

Author's Note

TerryDarcy-Ryan   akaSheerTerror
I wrote this after waking from a dream. In the dream I could fly this is an incredible feeling. I briefly thought about the world below and I could no longer fly. My wings gone and I braced myself for a fall. Just a dream. If your still reading thank you and God Bless

Dreams often have 'hidden' meanings, often trying to sort out problems in one's inner mind. I do see this as a fear of the fall from grace. You write it amazingly well, and it makes a wonderful poem.

I love the pictures... and the writing, good god damn you are talented. And I would never ever say that unless I meant it; I'm even an atheist.

Awww, shucks. :) I'm just humbly standing near the light of awesome coming off of you, dude. :D
Incredible and classically beautiful poem. Eloquent language with lovely form, flow, and rhyme. Thank you for the explanation, and this just enhances the content. "Stardust falls like snow lighting the road"-lyrical and transcendent. Kudos!

Again, wow... I never know what to really say after reading your poems like 5+ times in a row to myself, aha... May I ask how you write the rough draft? Meaning... Do you write it all together, unedited at the start, or do you actually edit as you go, and finish line by line. I am sorry to ask, I am just amazed at your words and the way you tilt up and down with your scheme... Stellar work, absolutely some of the best writing I have had the pleasure of reading in a long minute... Perfectly penned... I would quote lines, but the entire thing is worthy of being quoted...

"We fall whispers of a feather seeking prayer"

This is so descriptive of vain hope that what is...is not. Like flying in your dreams and crashing but never landing upon wakening.

Very eloquent, beautiful language.
