Broken Dreams

Shards of broken dreams cascade before me As pottery, dashed upon the stone In my heart I know that I have killed them As the dreams we have do not die alone They must be sown in fertile fields of promise Nurtured until they dare to bloom anew Their fragrance to be savored by believers Gathered once again as dreamers do I am free, free to dream again

    My Big congratulations, Bob on your first place in Brian Strand's contest. Each stanza is written with true spirit and fervent faith. I love the ending line," I am free, free to dream again. " Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your kind comments. Your friend in poetry, Andrew.

    The same can be said of poems. the thoughts and words just need to be nutured until they flow out of our pens. Then we are free to write another one. Good poem and great win. Mike
