Write your dreams, advised 
Carolyn Kizer, but none the wiser, 
she did not imagine these nightly 
screenplays the mind designs 
with no director, no choreographer,
no paid performers. They come  
at will and leave at will in a stay 
of reality day cannot provide. I   
like it here.  No!, love it.  Stronger 
words are needed for these trips
along territory uncharted and 
without my say. Only the mind 
knows landscapes, cities, countries 
of stopped clocks where people 
you love, or do not love, reside.
By dream's decry, there's 
forever sunlight on this ride. 
The night's outside.

    "Only the mind", indeed. How we build it, is up to us. Very touching lines, Nola.
