"Dreams And..."

"Dreams And..."

A Poem by Chris
"

yes

"
"Dreams And..."
Seems we live in the starlight,
and dream as we follow the sunlight -
eyes and breath drawn to
golden warmth and filling mellow heat
that holds all that we are,
were,
will be...
as I's meld into we's
and we's melt into
us...
and our taste IS
the breath we exhale,
and our thoughts are 
the flow of senses
and woven nows
that blend existence into futures past
and presents that become...
dreams and...
me's.

well...okay then....

i was starting to feel as KL put it, serene....but then this reminded me of an oft made pattern for me.

the good, the bad, the memories of what once was in a present that never became a future, just a past.

you make words so pliable...and you shape them so beautifully, my friend.

When I know a Jacob may pause with me there is no other option... nice of you to reflect and speak.
If there was anything that embodied your being, your soul it is these kind words that flow in river's stream.

I really can't remember reading something of yours that didn't make me feel thoughtful and serene.

Beautiful mind :)

Absolutely love that first line. 'Seems we live in the starlight and dream as we follow the sunlight'. Maybe it's because starlight is one of my favourite words but there's something so surreal about living in starlight. Love this.

A love story ...how does it end? Has it ended with "me"..or continued till that "me" can join their beloved in heaven? Just a wondering as I read your thoughts.. Always enjoy your writing Chris

Yes it does ( :
The flow of dreams and starlit wishes rise and fall with the breath of these thoughts.
Gave me pause, and ponderings which linger.

I seriously paused with your latest posting... it was grand.
Fascinating idea that the dreams of the starlight may be the reality and the sunlight reality is spent in dreaming...dreaming, remembering what was, and is, and is to come ("futures past"... I remember "Days of Future Past" Moody Blues - those poets!) I'm also thinking about a Robert Louis Stevenson quote that I saw once and wish I had kept it...about which is indeed the waking life and which is the dream.)

You've used the 'I "and "we" and "us" and then returned to "me's" as if alone again...I am perhaps wandering in my own dreams right now.
You said "feel free" and obviously I got a bit carried away.

Not carried away at all... I'm glad you paused.
