A Dream

Perhaps she dreams of love to come
A pose of beauty unsurpassed
Here in the shadows silent calm
White hands rest so gently clasped.

A pose of beauty unsurpassed
Her flowing hair conceals an envied sleep
White hands rest so gently clasped
Dreams confined are hers to keep

Her flowing hair conceals an envied sleep
Here in the shadows silent calm
Dreams confined are hers to keep
Perhaps she dreams of love to come


For Isaiah Zerbst - A Dream Contest

Hi Barbara: I am really thrilled. At first I didn't think I could write anything but the Pantoum form really fit this style of painting. Lucky coincidence. Love<*_*> Suz

I think you have written a winner here. I love the way you imagine her dreams, yet say "her hands gently clasp them and confine the dreams" They are hers and we can only wonder.
