A Poem by Ashley Armstrong

A drabble about dreams

What is a dream? 
A dream is many things 
An illusion or goal 
Your imagination conjuring flight of fancy 
A whimsical idea 
Or a vision of happiness 
Dreams have been around forever 
And I've been dreaming as long as I can remember 
But dreams go beyond their dictionary meaning 
Into something nobody can explain 
Life is but a dream

Life is a dream fueled by a person's mind. Well said. The poetry is great, and speaks out.
"Your imagination conjuring flight of fancy. A whimsical idea."
There's a lot of ways to describe life, and it's pretty hard to define. But this, this sums it up.

"But dreams go beyond their dictionary meaning "
I agree with the above lines. Dreams are hard to define but we do need them. Thank you for the excellent poetry.
