Embracing Father.

Embracing Father.

A Poem by John Phoenix Hutchinson.
"

Have you ever had a dream as powerful as this???

"



-----------------

Somber, I entered slumber.
Hoping to escape the pain.
Dark depression, had a hold on me.
Tender soul, brokenhearted slain.

As I fell into my dormancy.
Something happened, like never of yore.
Vibration, then hands lifting me up.
Naked, through mystical door.

Finding myself by childhood home.
Standing by pond, crystal clear.
Fishes swim with elegance and grace.
Feeding on my falling tears.

Suddenly, I hear my late Father cry out.
On a bed, he's prostrate before.
Kneeling beside, with my arms held aloft
I collapse and fall to the floor.

Awoken, by the warmth of his breath
He has entered my mind with his grace
"John do not seek darkness and death."
Weeping, we both embraced.

Waking up to a dream that feels so real and bring tears rolling down your eyes is heartbreaking. I am sad for your sorrow. You have expressed your sentiments well and have shown us the deeper side of your depression, which I know can be hard to share. This is troubling on your mind. but I am glad you were able to get it down. Thank you for sharing my friend.

This is wonderful. Having lost my father at a very young age I can relate, unfortunately i was too young to remember him, but this is a beautiful dream/memory filled with contingent sorrow that goes with memory so often. Not surprised this won, I think its brilliant. Your dad would be proud!

Many times I wanted to write a poem inspired by my dreams... I guess I never tried hard enough to do it nor had a dream that would inspire me that much, but this... this is so deep and pure. I like the emotions that you've put within this poem and that's what makes it so great.

Thank you for the amazing piece of art.
