What Dreams Are Made Of

To paint a dream requires no paint Or soft bristles that dance on canvas A dreamer’s strokes like pleas of saint Tiptoed and etched through dauntless sagas. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Dreams are a nightmare wrapped in silk Undulating in its velvety strife At times they’re cloaked buffoon ilk Smirking and lurking on a gleaming knife. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Rats, parmesan, petunia, are dreams too. The ambitious pulpits, a glass coffin, a snatched crown, Serpent in bed, dreaded thesis, crowd’s boo, The beggar’s smile, Oprah’s cheers, dollars on paper brown. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Dreams are dreams whose origin unknown As this poetry scribbled in an estranged spur. Dreams are dreams unshackled through stones Of beautiful aching poured from limitless core. © 07-31-2012
