I Dreamed

A Poem by vinny ciambriello

As I stood on a pier upon the Hudson River upstate NY on a quiet Sunday afternoon, my eyes espied a boat, small, white and lazily floating in its center...

I Dreamed

I dreamed of a wide river
Dark, swirling velvet
and a small boat upon it
And me in that boat, staring up into the blue
lost to the world,  now forgotten
And i was sure I could leave it forever
and float forever
and kiss the one I love as long as that
make love to my own soul
treasure a day, an hour
the time it takes to blink
But, alas, i was upon the shore
and the boat was someone else's
The dream still holding me there,
a half hour to the next train home
I sighed deeply
The gulls landing in the late afternoon mocked me
The distant shore mocked me
The total laughing stock, i turned my back to it
Though as the train followed the river back
I was assured of its presence
Soaked deep into me
And closing my eyes briefly
I again floated thereupon
in blue heavens
Happy as before
