A Spin Around Dreamland...

A Spin Around Dreamland...

Slow slide slip down,
Snore peeks out,
Burbles above sand,
Fade into reality,
Just a whimsy-bit,
In-between state,
Not quite watching,
Not quite dreaming,
Mental snow-screen,
Anything is possible,
Just for that moment.

Author's note:
We took a trip to Morris and Ottawa, Illinois the other day, and looked through a few little shops along the way. In one called Deja Vu in Ottawa, I found these beautiful little leather-bound journals full of blank acid-free paper in shirt-pocket size. They are embossed with a photo of Rembrandt's Windmill drawing. I bought two for poetry on-the-go. I decided to fill the first with poems of sleep and dreams. I'm going to call the book "Rembrandt Sleeping." This is the first poem in the series.

Rembrandt Sleeping, poem #1

Words are the mind's bridge - it's connection to the universe.
Love is the heart's bridge - it's connection to all other souls.
Loving words can work miracles.
All of my published poetry is at:
