I Woke up in a Dream

I woke up in a dream on a coast I've never seen But somehow in a way, I knew I'd be here one day I'm detecting a touch of Spanish, language it is not All I see is leaving Galleon's, raped, now forgot I'm seeing centuries before me, colonial now so free The Japanese like them before, ravaging in spree On a beach I walk to the light, attracting I to enter I'm there, as I walk through, my viewing now centred Into this lush land I walk, not knowing where I'll be There's something that desires, I'll know when I see Walking, walking, walking, it's all I appear to do Clearer my mind becomes, I know I'm walking to you Further my weakened feet, stride through their weak I know at the end of my journey, I'll meet whom I seek A village, a town nears, as I look back to whence I came Awakening in this dream, praying this person feels the same .

It sure is about the Philippines Olive. Sometimes poems are thought up in an instant. This is simply one of these times when one's mind wanders and this is the outcome. It's certainly one I enjoyed writing for I smiled whilst writing - James...... :)

I'm not sure if you are writing an imagination story or if this is for the contest. It is good either way.

Just a few lines that sprung to mind and captured there and then. Thanks kindly Brenda, James :)
