Reality of the Dream

In the dream world I love to go and fly No matter what I do, I still go high During the day I go in an airplane Up in the air I go weirdly insane I dream of an orange sky floating there With purple clouds moving along somewhere In the daylight hours the sky is a blue It has clouds in quite a lovely white hue The city streets are amassed with people The dream contains so many parts feeble The fields of concrete are opened to cars Where in the evening you can’t see the stars Zombies run around looking for some blood In my dream I run avoiding the flood There are many stores on the wide sidewalks My days are made up with shopping and talks The poles in my dream are purple with eyes Nowhere I go do I ever despise There are many wires going from each pole In the daylight the sight is from the soul Dreams are cloudy and certainly unreal But the day is clear, real, and has appeal

    The air is full of reality clouds. The visions we see in our own little shrowds. A peek out in a world beyond. A cresent moon transending dawned. A picture of reality in a dream Russell. Loved it. Peace. :)

    Really enjoyed this interesting analogy-- perfect rhyming couplets of night and day. You described the color of the sky perfectly when on an aeroplane.

    What a beautiful dream world you have created my friend! It is us who make our happiness and unhappiness. A lovely message wrapped in a verse form! Superb!
