Dream My mirrored reflection silently speaks You honor me with your vulnerability Your scars of life Your unhealed wounds of betrayal Dream journals tattoo your body Your open arms of desire call to me With eyes closed I sense Whispers of your silky wings Fluttering against smeared panes of glass Separating us in the night Your voiceless screams Crushed pink musical notes hover close by Magical music envelopes me Dancing sounds emanating from The depths of your kaleidoscope soul A rebirth of desire You are my child My eyes call to you Fragile strands of distance Separate us My child I long to touch you To hug you To comfort you Our palms meet Mirroring one another Rising them above our heads We create a circle of life together Only the transparent looking glass Keeps me from feeling The warmth of your touch I read stories to you You cannot hear me I turn the book around Pressing it to the glass Not knowing if you Can interpret the words Hello my dear child I am here to make you smile I will dance for you I will pantomime I will become a dynamic octopus Changing color and form Before your eyes I reach through the glass As it liquifies and melts Coating my fingertips Hands and arms In a warm embrace I find you in the blur Lifetimes pass Time Inhales Grasping blindly I cup your shoulders Bringing you to me Dissolving all barriers I press you against My beating heart Sweat glides down my cheekbone Caressing your forehead Leaving salty trails Child of mine No greater honor Has been bestowed on me Allow me to help you heal As you have healed me Cherished Line drawings Smiling suns Red Dogs Green Trains Spider webs of glitter Paper mache bowls Painted in Aztec colors Fill my dresser drawer Remembering sugar cookie stars Coated in Thick frosting Sprinkles Burnt edges Many skinned knees Broken spirits Bactine and Bandaids Notes by my bed “I love you Mama” These moments in time Stored in the locket of My heart Forever I kiss you now

Even if this is only a dream, it is so emotive, Susan! It appeals to my heart and soul. Loss can never be put completely to rest; memories keep coming back, not to haunt, but to keep the bond alive. ~ Congratulations on being awarded p.o.t.d. Warm regards & Hugs // paul

Dearest Susan, I adore being able to experience this amazing dream with you. So many emotions stirred. Dreams can be a reminder of the past we've lost contact with, a way to reconnect.. and dreams can be a magical way of reconnecting with the inner child who might have wandered too far from one's heart. Your brilliant words are deep, beautiful, moving and bring me to the center of this intimate scene . Such a wonderful pic of you too, my inspiring friend. Your poem is breathtaking and your soul is radiant. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Dear Susan, Apologies for the delay in responding to your heartfelt comment so rich in introspection and intelligence. Thank you . I am ingratitude for your words and your vision of life, heart, soul and nuances of our journey through space and time. Sending big hugs and love. The dream was very powerful and very visceral. Love, Susan :) xx

Susan, my belated congratulations are heartfelt and full of admiration for one who writes so beautifully. Your POTD so richly deserved. I felt relief when i read below this was a dream. The loss of a child is unbearable, but it was God's choice, and in that I find solace. I lost my first child, at five days old, but was rewarded 18 months later when I gave birth to a healthy bouncy baby boy. I applaud the absolute richness of words you envelop your poetry in. Blessings and hugs. Jennifer.

Jennifer, So very honored by your visit and humbled by your comments. I can't imagine the pain you felt when you lost your tiny baby...SO very happy you gave birth 18 months later to your heathy baby boy! A true blessing indeed. This dream came to me in meditation and its effect was so visceral I had to write about it. Thank you for your energy and heart. Blessings and hugs right back, Susan :)

The heart of the poet is dipped into a well of Beauty.. the mind of a word weaver is sensitive to each single knot of life's rich tapestry.. the rhymer is in tune with an inspiring muse that amazes and enchants. You are a wonderful poetess whose heart, mind and poetry deeply and genuinely connect with the spirituality of the inner world and the rawness of the mundane.Your poetry is of that flair, sweet Susan! Worthy of being highly appreciated! Congratulations on your POTD honour! Love and hugs.

I've never been a parent, but this gives me a good glimpse of what it is to have a wounded child and want to help but not be sure how. Great job,and congrats on POTD!

Susan, 'Only the transparent looking glass ~~ Keeps me from feeling ~~ The warmth of your touch' This poem touched me, more than if...wishes were granted. With two palms met, I would know. I'd pick that lovely smile, yes I would. -Richard
