Dreams' Holiday

Dreams' Holiday

A Poem by Poetic_Vixen
"

My free verses are wine I keep to age into richness. Translation they are often raw until I refine them.

"
Tonight, dreams have wandered off,
they evaded my slumber
to merry over the mists of night,
with sombre arms like shimmery brushstrokes
that have embraced me lovingly so often,
they follow moon's pearly glow
where trinkets of magic await them
to gather those charms
for the next time we meet,

they touch stars on their way
like notes of song,
a symphony setting them high
they compose constellations
with every star to be wished upon,
an amulet of stellar love;
awaiting their fall
often escaping an unfortunate lover's eye.

Carrying around fairy dust
left astray by fireflies making way home,
they round a window lit with a lonesome candle
its charm softly seducing every corner
softly touching the entwined lovers asleep,
the fragrant blend of their breaths
lacing romance into these dreams on voyage,
as they flow past the waking dawn,
venturing through blooming buds
up my window where I wake,
my eyes opening free of weights
that burdened them through the night.

Author's Note

Poetic_Vixen
Wrote this midway of a writer's block that's giving me existential crisis (haha) and wondered "am I that desperate to write something?" Yes...yes, I am. So here you go, a dump I will probably keep editing, your reviews would be a lot help.

Featured Review

Our sleep occupies a significant fraction of the human lifespan, but always much more pleasant and enriching when we dream as then one enters into a surreal world where all things are possible whether good bad or indiffent, for as this imaginative poem concludes, " eyes opening free of weights
that burdened them through the night "

First of all, I love your dream! It is filled with so many emotions, magical moments, fairy tale sprinkles, “ an amulet of stellar love”… dreams that wander into so many circumstances “ carrying around fairy dust”……touching stars, in a symphonic world of romance…….a beautiful dream to awaken to….

Sometimes we go without dreams when we sleep and sometimes the dreams we experience are not dreams at all but reality as we leave our bodies to explore the world we live in or meet with loved ones in Spirit. I can't see any trace of writer's block in this wondrous write, dear P. V... You have captured nighttime superbly and the many events of the night including romantic dreams are very artistically inked. A magical write which I so enjoyed reading. Thank you for sharing, dear friend...

Most welcome always, my dear friend... Love and blessings, dear P. V...
Honestly, I love this poem, it surrounds, love, romance, adventure and magic.
Everything which I love to write about. 🤍

It explores the beauty and wonder of the nighttime world, where dreams roam freely and connect us to the magic of the universe..

Literary devices such as personification (dreams following the moon's glow), simile ( "like notes of song"), and imagery ( "window lit with a lonesome candle") enhance the poem's beauty and mystery.

Perfect poem, its great as is..
