childhood dreams scatter
to places unknown

I dream to be your dream

I dream to become 
that dream which comes in your sleep
kissing your soft mind
and leaving your sleeping face
ever glowing with bright smile.

only a dream

the softest caress

of your hand touching my cheek

wakes me from slumber

... I reach across emptiness

your touch was only a dream

Night sky

Oh glamorous thief
You have stolen all my dreams
And hidden them each
In your obsidian keep
Where I search for them in vain.

On The Edge Of A Dream

An opaline dream: the room is a pearl filled bowl and moonstone-moulded. Bright beads of day roll away; night is crystal-crowned with stars.

Childhood Dreams

She bends to gather Getting flowers of her youth Her mother stands near Smiling with a certain warmth This is what childhood dreams are

Life of an Ice Cube

Natures gem solid Cold, now taken in my hand Her back in arched shape To her nape, warmth slowly melts Witnessing trickles running Down her spine it flows Curvaceous sighs quivering In hungered view, I Retrace it's path to her nape Fingers now cold in excite .

your single nod
as I touch you in that place --
mature thoughts
my dream is infused with
the smell of white chocolate

I open weak eyes --
the small flame wavers
as you walk slowly
you know I am in your palm
even as the fragrant candle

I Once Dreamt

The tears have fallen
near constantly since that day
when it was explained
the dreams that I once dreamt
were nothing but a fool’s vision.

Our Fantasy

Thoughts read, fridge raided Opposite me with a wink She smiles with a twist Sultry spooning her wet lips Mint Ice Cream kisses adorn .

Gentle Strokes

Requested I am as I witness gravity tanned porcelain viewed with gentle strokes I caress her jet black mane captures me <*>

Moonlight Invitation


Awake in dream time
I slip on restless slippers,
tiptoe from slumber,           *
at the moon’s invitation,
delivered with dappled light.
Night embraces me,
and moonlight reassures me,
giving me comfort,                       *
knowing that somewhere, out there,
you dream under the same moon.

A Quickie

beneath ocean waves
dreams of those who dream - simmer
waiting for that spark
to lift them from their slumber
in vibrant purple bubbles

Wonderous heart

Wondrous heart

In even cosmos,
Diamond and gold get glow,
Like knowledge to souls.
Breathing through debris in slush,
Opt for gems with wondrous heart.

New Jersey

Lenni-Lenape smokes
still climb Appalachians
To dream the Passaic`s Great Falls, 
the banks Delaware,Hudson,
and Long Island Sound`s echo.

Lavender Rose

Love in my warm heart A symbol that represents A certain one rose In fact a lavender one A unique dream coming true Both man and woman Living a dream of pure love A heartwarming love A great feel of lavender A tender lavender rose!

flowers fill my dreams


this springtime desire
oh this forever sighing
the snow falls and falls

          bird songs and long forest walks
          and wild flowers fill my dreams

One last dream is left...
something I've pursued for long:
to go back in time
and see myself a young man,
to get rid of this madness!

it's that crazy dream again
thinks it can fly
on noiseless wings passing by
monarch butterfly

We have trained our hearts
To see a million things
Shine out from the stars
Anything you can dream of
You just have to imagine

As I lay in my bed,
I dream these dreams
Of happiness, and greatfulness.
Do you ever dream that?
I know I do!
