Day-dreamer’s Day

Day-dreamer’s Day

A Poem by JE Falcon
"

A visual description of a whimsical, fictional, place where artists go to dream. Or is it?

"

Butterflies flutter near the leaves on the trees

and their direction is altered by a warm Autumn's breeze.

The fallen leaves rustle, scurrying around

like the squirrels who gather what is found on the ground.


It's a daydreamer's day, footloose and free,

for the poet, the artist, or the dreamer to be.

The Sun creates lances that dart from the sky,

piercing the shade-trees, then left there to die.


There is a brook in the woods, that trickles so right,

lending sound to a vision in the Day Dreamers sight.

And all of life's cares become buried this side

of the land of the dreamer and the carpet they ride.


I shall join in those dreams that, once, I would shed,

those visions of fancy for a daydreamer's bed.

A bed made of clover, near a wind-blown tree,

where this world departs and eyes close to see.

This reminds me of a back road I used to drive through called Carmel valley road. It is a very scenic road that curves along the mountain side and farmlands here in northern California. There is a small stream on one side and very beautiful trees dotted throughout the ride. Eventually it will lead you to the ocean sands in Monterey. I am pretty sure Steinbeck knew of this road though I can't confirm. Thank you for this wonderful trip to a mystical place.

The above lines, I liked. Dreams can steal away and make us hopeful. Then can disappoint us. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Sounds like a great place. But then you still have to take out the garbage after you leave it.
