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.

In my moonlight dream
I can't believe I'm really here
we’re dancing in a forest
You light my life when you're near
Green earth is our floor
Our steps are magic in this place
and moon beams - our disco ball
Stars all aligned - for loves embrace
while soft music is the night
Romantic whispers feel so right

You are clad in white
Now look deeper to the heart
My golden gown sweeps the ground
I was mesmerized from the start
My beautiful knight - 
Princess shining in the day
Your bright eyes adore me as
I'm taken by all your ways
you twirl me among the trees
Dreamer's breath becomes love's breeze

*Andrea wrote the original "My Moonlight Dream" as a double tanka (from the gal's perspective and all the odd numbered lines in this poem).  I came along and harmonized it by adding alternating rhyming lines (from the guy's perspective and all the even numbered lines in this poem) for each of her lines.. Thus a new duet original, "All Your Ways". Hope you enjoy it!

Once.....Our sweet Dream...(part 1)

Mermaid of the deep
Hollow echoes in vast seas
His warmth tames her waves
Melting ice walls block her cave
Pirate steals Her heart and tail

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

My erratic dreams
scary, mystic, sexual
establishing a new world 
powerful and prevailing.

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.

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
