I Dreamt of You Last Night

We stood on the bow
of an old wooden ship.
Splashing waves; music sounds;
salty mists with each dip.
I, in a white pheasant dress;
you only in jeans.
No one else on the deck;
just us in bare feet.
Your chest, warm to my back;
wrapped in your loving arms.
Mystic waters of black;
Ocean sky casts moon and stars.
Ancient lands strangely appear
as completely in full view.
You softly whisper in my ear,
"This world's for me and you."
A realm only for us;
in dreams we meet there.
Awakened, I touch
dried salt in my hair.

This poem is pure magic, Arlene! I really loved it!.... However, it was missing the ABAB rhyme scheme that I was looking for, so I could only give this an Honorable Mention. Congrats on your win! Your poem deserves a much higher place, though! :)

The 4th stanza has the correct ABAB form. I just felt like the others didn't quite rhyme, .....but this is only my opinion!!! :)

This is a very wonderful poem, Arlene. Makes me think that it seemed so unreal that this reality felt like a dream, but she woke to realize it was real. Whatever it may be it certainly stirs the emotions. Very well done, my friend.... Robert.

Thank you, Robert. I watched a movie once where a girl would dream a different life and she couldn't be sure which one was real... Makes one think.. Hugs.. Arlene
