Last Night I Dreamt

I go, To read the inscriptions, Engraved in stone for all eternity. ~~~ I ramble up the labyrinth road into the hush, Bare trees creak, crack and groan sadly; Where birds are chirping below an inky purple sky, And a stony cold wind blows upon my face. I have stepped into a dream. So beautiful and lonely is this place of tears, That I wish to run far away from this dream; Still a peacefulness wraps around me, surrounds me, In this place etched within my weeping mind. I have stepped into a dream. Headstones row on row, some old and crumbling, Inscriptions unreadable, others bright and new; I admire beautiful angels with protective flowing wings, Then, through the maze the one I seek beckons. I have stepped into a dream. Deep, penetrating words engraved for all time, The beloved resting beneath my feet in peace; And I am adrift in this beautiful misty place of dreams, Floating endlessly with distant memories. I have stepped into a dream. ~~~ The leafs on the long road crunching, Where in the hearse I rode; And when it reached it's place, A red rose I laid with head bowed. _______________________________ Theme Serious Written July 30, 2013 Verse For the contest, Last Night I Dreamt, Francine Roberts

    wow, Constance, you have succeeded in writing one of the best I've seen for the "serious" side of this challenge theme. She's just got to love this one. And I see you are doing a new "layout" here like you are asking for your new contest! thanks for my placement in your contest. I've been so inspired by some of your contests in the past as well.
