"





















I live in a book of dreams

It’s where I first saw her face

Sacred light in her deep river eyes

Sunrise scented sighs of summer

Where the wind was whispered wildness

She taught me to love the dark

Here the stars are held in deepest embrace

By the ebony night’s hush

And we journeyed on celestial illuminations

As everything was transformed

Even my name when it was on her lips

Became a prayer calling me home

She taught me that love is everlasting

And until you find it, you’re only dreaming

So perhaps, we are all just dreamers

Waiting to be awakened.

Author's Note

An owl on the moon
“And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

This recalled the mythology of the Australian bush people and their creation myth in which they call the time before memories 'dream-time' - prehistory.
I felt this sleep and I felt myself awakening and if it never happens again I will always be grateful - to her - for having been awake with me.
I'm glad Ria recommended this write Craig.

This is so amazing! The language you use is what's the most astonishing . . . each word carefully selected for maximum sound (into lyrical groupings, with well-done alliteration & other crafting) & also for sensory meaning for your overall seductive message of dreamy possibly unattainable romantic love. I also like the way the whole thing is kinda circular, ending up where it started.

I've always been a dreamer since I was young & even as I've grown up, I've learned that there's no harm in dreaming. It helps me seek out a secret place & cherish little things. When we fall in love, we're taken to a new dream which we happen to live in real time. So, I guess we'd be day dreamers then. Love takes us on such a ride where we live our own story, build it & make it reality. I marvel your touching, euphoric words written & they've made me believe that anything is possible, that love has no limits...in the end, we are all dreamers, but who ever said that was a bad thing?

All I can say is that this is simply beautiful. Dream.. Yes! We all live in a dream.. that's a world that only we are familiar with. And this poem so perfectly describes that world where anything can happen. The most beautiful part of this poem is that you have seen your love in your dream and she has given you a whlole new perspective about love. That's simply awesome.

I think all of us live in a book of dreams. Our lives live forward rather it be good or bad we must live on. life is nothing but a big journey all of us must take. Wonderful writing once again

We are all dreamers, and we accomplish in this life through dreams, it can be in sleep or it can be awaken, but everything we do comes from a dream... I loved the concept of this write... Very insightful and thought provoking...

Great poem of Love. I am moved by the statement that until you find love you are only dreaming. Well put together. Waiting for that great awakening, True Love.
