Far Beyond (poem)

Updated on June 1, 2013

I had a dream one sultry summer’s night

The stardust cast a trail to light my way

A gentle stream was there to guide my flight

To place some purpose to meaning of day


And there far beyond all purpose for time

Awoke a freedom which laid dormant for a while

A whisper of how possibilities can be

Beyond the limits

Of imprisoned souls

Who had fallen by the wayside

Crying Don’t leave me here


Far beyond all purpose for music to dance

Or any limits on creation

We are the music

We are the smile on other dreamers’ faces

The reason for warm embraces

We are an extension of The Light

Crying Don’t leave me here


And there far beyond we fly

Marveling at the all we made possible

Listening to voices

Who have glided to a wayside

To drink the waters of a stream

Of something we mislaid amid our day

It’s just a dream I heard somebody say


On the following day I saw my love

We sat mid our stardust our cares to dismiss

I wanted to share what I had dreamed of

As she closed her eyes preparing to kiss


And there far beyond all purpose for time

Music only

      What a talent!

      You create marvelous mysterious scenes with the simple tool of words.

      We travel with you far above the limits or confines of time or space.

      You show us that there is something more.........

      What a beautiful work of art, Martin.

      This romantic poetic narrative, proves that anything is possible in dreams,containing the woman that, I'm sure, every man wants to be with, and the video beats were quite hypnotic.

      Good work!
