The Land of Dreams

The Land of Dreams

A Chapter by Wondering Mind

the sea;
her waves caressed
these old forgotten shores.
gently,
she wiped away
abandoned footprints
where love once walked

 

the wind;
her soft whispers blew
a cool summer breeze
soothingly
dancing with blossoms
of my tender emotions

 

the moon;
her face cast
a soft, dreamy glow
on the canvas
of my open heart

 

the night;
she sang a lullaby
gracefully
sending my mind
to far away lands
of beautiful dreams

Your words provided such a soothing, dreamy departure that I felt myself blink at the last word ~ surprised to find myself . . . well, . . . where I am. How each element of nature's glory set the mind to absolute peace is brilliant. "the sea;/her waves caressed/these old forgotten shores." Yes, you had me at the first line.

Beautifully done. A place I would love to wander to most often. Thank you for this.

Such beautiful imagery evoked here. I was there, in that beautiful dream, looking at the moon, hearing the wind, feeling the sea. I want to stay there and not return to this reality we know and trust. I want to be far away.......

Thank you for your beautiful words.

Lovely! I love all those nature pics you choose as they all are part of my life and i specially like:
"the night;
she sang a lullaby
gracefully
sending my mind
to far away lands
of beautiful dreams"
as for me the night is always a way to "clean up" problems and journey through the beautiful dreams!

Oh my! I am absolutely floating in the sea you write of, as your words are comforting, and give needed solace to my spirit. It makes me feel as if I want to cuddle up under a warm down comforter with the soft glow of candlelight flickering images on the ceiling at my bedside, and a bouquet of fragrant roses in a crystal vase ready to unfold their blossoms to release their aroma into the air as I drift off to sleep!
Beautiful, just beautiful!!

WM, this tender and beautiful write is more than just a love ballad, this is a painting you cleverly created with words. I love how you included The sea, the wind, the moon, the night and everything that made them resemble her... again adding nature to fully explain a transcendent love. Heart warming and truly a work of art.

Wow how romantic an lonely all at the same time as one lovers memories of his love...... What a beautiful picture you have written!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think my favorite part would have to be
the sea;
her waves caressed
these old forgotten shores.
gently,
she wiped away
abandoned footprints
where love once walked




I actually had to blink that single tear I know that this was not intended to make one cry but it hit home ya know??? How beautiful thank you so much for charing this with us!
KUDOOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What memories your poems bring back to me every time I read one. The imagery is always so vivid, it's as though I'm living that moment all over again. Well done! P.W.
P.S. Sweet Dreams!
