From the Pocket of a Dream

*The Answer*


Like in an enchanted forest
the ray of light starts drawing images
between the trees in my odd memory
Colours whirl up from the ground
painting a magic hazy picture
seen so many times
in the mirror of a dream
A dance of dying leaves
awaken to life again
tickled by the summer wind
forced to one more flight
before the final destination
saying a tender farewell
a moment away from their eternal sleep
The invisible harp strings
shiver in agony of a distant tune
spreading a painful melody
while the moonligt drips down
leaving its silvery pearls
on the moss of my strange vision
Your shape in the glade of darkness
a whispering voice from the woods
tempting me to the wrong direction
An eternal confusion
which path to follow
the question of a lifetime
seamed never to be solved
But now I know why
The time had not come

    Your words so often echo the emotions of what I have felt, that I have empathy in all your works.. And you so eloquently weave them into a tale one wishes sometimes never to emerge from. As I feel your passion and pain. Thank you for sharing and this is a most beautiful site Eclipse .. Dreamwalker

    Wow, the picture looks so much like my woods here that it isn’t even funny in the least. Naturally, I enjoyed the poem and your talented work.
