What of a dream

Sometimes a dream makes one reflect
the inner conscience one does suspect,
I wonder what dreams want to convey,
we dream in our own way

there is no coherence
nor a foreplay,
dreams only us sway,
if such be the manner of dreams,
why suddenly we awake to scream,

in the darker alleys and crevices of mind
we leave all memories far behind
then as we awake and ponder
what dream was conveying we wonder

but softness comes our way,
so meditate and cluttering of minds keep away
dreams are just incoherent
so reliance on them makes for these being deterrent
dream into the slumbering
all day all night
keep them from allowing you
to be lead into fright…

You are finding your way with this one, just a tweak here and there and this one would ring.
One small thing be more positive in your words, don't beat about the bush, flowers are for the flower garden, speak up and become a battering ram when needed.
Love you all the same Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

a battering ram......

this one is really good. Many good lines, but stanza three is my favorite.
Thanks for sharing.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Beautifully written : rhyme, cadence, "softness"of subject matter.


I wanted to compose
some thing unusual this one time

Brilliant! I like your "unusual" - you should do more! I loved the title and the dreamy content.

Can't say much more than the above comments.

This is really, really good.

Love Mand xxxx

someone came to consult
and i knew what her dream
must have been
so she accepted

what I advised I can't say
but this Dream poem
was her thoughts contribution ...
I wanted to compose something different
glad you all so far have liked it
fervently hope
Jess will
