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.

Miracle is indeed the right word.
It's truly beautiful John, you deserved to win. I have had many dreams of people I've lost, but sadly always wake feeling sorrow because they're not there like in my dream. Maybe I could try to see them as a visit of love, as you do.

What a compelling piece, dreams are so intangible usually that I admire your ability to get it down in writing ! The whole thing seems to have been a very cathartic experience for you which is one of the purposes of writing I think...I would love to know the reasons that you have been using archaic language ?? "of yore", "knelling" etc ?? But I reiterate this is a fantastic poem and a compelling read well done :) x

Actually Kneeling worked as well......i had to look it up in dictionary though. :)
Whoa, this immediately put a lump in my throat. Both for the pain you were going through and the beautiful wisdom of your Father's words and the way they were conveyed to you. Excellent write! This is going in my favorites.
