Today it is stormy outside
thunder, lightning even cold hail preside
cozy and warm against tempestuous weather
once again my thoughts crowd together

 I choose to acknowledge vivid dreams
 a lady ‘Leilani’ has gleamed her beams
the same vision four nights in a row
either an angel, a spirit ,or both
she does not walk—she floats

Her pale face and blue eyes are all I see
we are always together--art house overlooking sea
I write, she illustrates with beautiful painting
sharing our creativity, accurately attaining

 Intuitive insight into the words I have penned
 she knows how I feel, understands—comprehends
an Angel God has sent to confirm my written prose?
she smiles handing over graphic beauty—bestows
I dreamt this dream not knowing a ‘Leilani’— I have since discovered the name means “Royal child of heaven"

    What a pretty name and a beautiful tribute. The personality of the friend you describe oddly reminds me of a character in a book, I read awhile back. Her name was Leilani Klonk (though she wasn't even thirteen yet). Thanks for stopping by today to read me... :)

    Quite the vivid dream. I enjoyed reading this. The definition of the name is something of deep interest. Wonderfully written!
