Special Dreams

Special dreams

That come

On the grayest of winter days

When the north winds blow

And I close my eyes

And lay back

As music plays

It takes me away

To the place I want to be

Where green fields

Like emeralds shine

And colorful flowers grow

Where the skies are always sapphire blue

And the golden sun shines bright

White cotton clouds floating by

Where there are country roads

Lined with tall pines

And the wind whistles through

Singing a happy tune

At the end of the road

Sheep would graze

And life so mellow and slow

Never a worry or doubt

Special dreams

Can take me there

Where there is color everywhere

And the winter snows don’t blow

Special dreams

Along quiet rivers

Flowing softly

With weeping willows

And tall oak trees

The beauty of nature all around

Away from the gray and dreary

Country lanes

And lakes full of ducks

Wildflowers and meadows

Special dreams

Taking me away

To a place I wish to be

Just me drifting along

In my very special dreams

Beautiful, Gypsy, and such lovely pictures.

I needed that. Even though I live in the deep south we have three days in a row of temps in the 20's during the day, and in the low teens at night. No ice or snow though -- the kids are very disappointed. :)

I have peaceful, happy places I've been where I like to return to, at least in my mind, just as you have so beautifully written. Thanks for the pleasant visit to one of those places. And thanks for the beautiful music as well.

I love how you took us through so many colors at the beginning which is in contrast to the white snow and bleakness of winter. Yes, a poetess for certain.

This “special place” in your lovely poem is heaven…thank goodness we can experience our dreams sometimes in this beautiful but crazy world. The video with Paul and Wings melds so well with your words. Vote up and shared. :-)

Glad this and the music could take you to a lovely and peaceful place Cam.

So glad this could take you away from the harshness of winter Pamela.

Dreams are a way to get out of the ordinary world Blossom.

Oh, Genna it I sure hope it was a look into heaven. It made me think right away of that song by Paul.

So good to have dreams take me away from the grayness of winter Phyllis.
