Dreams of Flying - Flown Away

Into the air I used to lift,
and with the clouds or stars I’d drift. . . 
another place, another day. 
My flying dreams have flown away.

No longer do I sail to sky
at night when in my bed I lie.
My feet, once wings, have turned to clay
and dreams of flying flown away.

Now sweet night visions in my head
grow fewer.  More I dream instead
I’m lost or late.  To my dismay,
the flying dreams have flown away.

Oh, where has gone nocturnal bliss,
and how have plans gone so amiss
that now I find my world turned gray
and dreams of flying flown away?

I long to run, leave ground and then
glide up. .  . Why can’t I soar again?
I’m tied to earth and brought to bay
now flying dreams have flown away.

And  fleeting time has also flown,
so now I only can bemoan
a fantasy I can’t replay 
in dreams of flying. . . flown away.

    Nice flow to this poem Andrea. Seems dreams of flying are common. I have never flown in my dreams except in an airplane. Funny that if it is so common that I have never done love phyl

    I'm so sorry. Better times are coming though - a bluebird on the wing. LOve, daver

    I know the feeling that your dreams have sprouted wings and flown off without you. But other dreams come, sometimes softly riding a leaf in the breeze. You can't be tethered to the ground. Your poetry will always lift you and us.

    A little sad, but very thoughtful. Perfect form for this verse, I think, and beautifully written too. I can't help but laugh at your polar bear poem since I have been in the same boat. I must say your duck poem was very natural; that is one of the things I look for.

    Beautiful poem Andrea! Takes us back to our childhood dreams where everything was possible and flying was not unusual. I guess as we grow older we loose that which made opened our minds to possibilities - we become grounded in reality and forsake our dreams. Very well written!

    Great! "My flying dreams have flown away"!! Such an appealing refrain! Beautiful, Andrea!

    Time is a non-forgiving entity, my friend. Where once we soared impulsively, we are now grounded, our wings clipped.

    Glad to see one of these types of poems presented again. As usual, nicely written.

    Wonderful and a reality that comes more and more as we grow older. Loved reading your flowing words.....the dreams almost lifted again as I read. SuZ

    Oh so sad Andrea, when I was little I had an aunt who supposedly her grandma was a witch, one night she sewed her night gown to her nanny's in hope of flying with her, what a neat story he he , I always believed it though, but like you I rather fly with wings on, hope your dreams are sweet tonight, I'll say a prayer that they are, love and hugs vie xxx
