The Dreamer - A Visual Video Poem

POTD 29 April 2019 

Welcome! – Excited to release my second Visual Video Poem. 
(I trust you will enjoy the complete production effects and the superb narration by Gloriel Taylor on the video above)


Majestically I walked with beasts once I feared while jeweled song birds serenaded and cheered The Sun speckled lands in lustrous dots of gold I smiled, as lion cubs frisked with lambs made bold by the eyes of proud mothers observing their fold A conjoined Unison… ‘The Sacred Law of Old’ Children I once played with beat a pathway to me Laughing and welcoming… oh so jubilantly Amazingly I ran to them on legs so strong Loping with cheetahs in tune to our song Lovers outran flamingos in a flurry of pink The sky blushed with them keeping in sync Life’s expectations became a manifestation Savage beasts tamed in man’s aspirations Fantasy meeting reality like a carpet unrolled Last night I bought a dream that a dreamer sold And just like that my fate was sealed… As I became ~ A Vendor of Dreams ~ Snapping me out of my sweet languor “Dream Seller wake up”… I hear him whisper Another lost Soul barely able to cope… “Would you accept a dollar for your Dream of Hope?” By Maria Williams Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

This was amazing. Silly me I read the poem first. And thought it was fantastic. Then I found the video. The poem was pure joy to read. But then to hear it in a video context. A beautiful poetic artistic expression. Thank You!!!

Such lovely poetry and video! My favorite part: Lovers outran flamingos in a flurry of pink/ The sky blushed with them keeping in sync

Oh Maria, I enjoyed this one immensely. Love the poem and the video and the sound was amazing. Also, the voice of the girl who read it was perfect. This was surely a heavenly poem inspired by dreams of a better world to come where the "lion lays down with the lamb".FAVED of course. P.S. Congrats on getting POTD and on the Best New Poems list too.
