Last night
I heard my luggage
call my name

It was your voice
all so familiar
maybe i dreamed
of you in California

In my dream
I caressed your face
with the back of my hand
and smelled your dark hair

I saw the stars flicker
in your eyes
was it a dream,
a dream within you?

I saw you
I heard your sigh
I felt warm damp sheets
wrapped around us

lost in your embrace
I heard you catch your breath
felt your heartbeat
then heard you sigh again

all in a dream
of you in California..

    hi, Kenneth. .. I admire the poem. I know you wrote the poem 2 months ago. However, the poem fits perfectly right now. I love the big feeling of taking a dream a voice, that draws you in to a Texas, gals heart... you never know she might just be from Texas. ..this dream girl. .. I am from Texas, and this poem will go on my bio blog next week... where I showcase favorite poems. luv- linda.

    Hi Linda Paloma, So glad you enjoyed the poem..It was wrote out of poet's imagination at the time..Maybe it served a purpose today...They say dreams come true sometimes..Glad to read from you as usual... Yours, Ken...
