My Winter Dream

Updated on February 13, 2015

As the chill goes through my bones~

I will a vision~

Of Dandelions that are past their prime~

As white cotton seeds escape~

The hearty stem as once yellow petals embraced.

While the frost numbs my fingers and toes~

I fantasize~

Buttercups plenty scattered in~

Our sunny field~

I am so yearning this it seems real!

I fight the iciness which took over my mind~

Picturing clouds warm~

Like castles in the sky~

With frequent array of birds flying high by.

I will not allow the coldness to reach my heart~

As I desire to feel a summer breeze~

With palm trees gently swaying~

While children with colorful kites~

Delightfully go on playing.

I dream in the middle of wintery weather~

Imagining the babbling brook~

With sun soaked rocks~

I can sit upon~

As chipmunks scurry~

Back and forth from various nooks~

I slip to catch a glimpse of~

The real snow flurries~

As if I reached the end of~

A very good book too hurried!

Coming down from a readers high~

I realize~

My winter dream~

Is almost to an end~

Yet I will marvel in the time~

When I can dream again.

      Beautiful! When I meditate and affirm "Peace be Still," I also envision being on the beach or on a cruise boat surrounded by the infinite warmth of Love-Light. Sending you peace and joy...Gary.

      When I was young all I dreamt of was white sands and palm trees. I have no idea, how I ended up with snows and pine trees.

      Then again, this is a delightful read.

      Love and twinkle from the sky~

      Hi Lisa: What a beautiful poem, it speaks of realism, yet anticipates the seasons ahead and all that they will bring. Have a great week.
