From the Pocket of a Dream

*Dreams to Dream*

What is that
leaking through the hourglass of the past?
Grains, of which every single one holds a story,
maybe a piece of love to share,
some tears to shed or pains to forget.

Falling onto the bottom of our minds,
they never really disappear.
Woven into the purple softness of silence,
their eyes are closed.
Yet, their hearts beat alive.

Dreams to dream.
Dormant memories of a future.
Refreshing drinks for the thirsty soul.

Thoughts at nights.
Climbing the curtains, dripping to the floor.
Sweet like honey licks from the forbidden bottle
somewhere in the pantry of childhood.
Elated again,
joyful in a dance within the green meadows
of a new life,
breathing with new lungs,
growing bigger, stronger, opening new views…

Leaking through the hourglass, all that is gone is pain.
Old remembrance.
sunk into the blackness of the quicksand
which swallows it gladly, so eagerly,
satisfying an insatiable hunger
lingering all these years.

Dreams to dream.
On the purple bedding of love.
At last.

    beautiful Eclipse… We should never forget to Dream… and even if they are wisps of fantasy that float through our minds.. We can still close our eyes and capture their image to hold close to our hearts… And one day, One day, our Dreams come true..
    Love to you and yours

    The thoughts at night, climbing the curtains, they certainly pay me sweet visits …

    May you always dream sweet dreams when the twilight touches the indigo sky and the sun whispers sugary lyrics for good night …

    Always a pleasure to come here and read something across the universe of writing. Not to mention, to read up on a friend. Though, we never met, and to mention that on line friends, you’re one of the oldest I have now…

    I love so many lines of this poem, like “Sweet like honey licks from the forbidden bottle / somewhere in the pantry of childhood.” And the image of dreams woven in the silence with eyes closed and hearts beating alive.

    I have always been fascinated by hourglasses. They are mysterious, and they can teach us a million things about life. Love, cat,

    Lovely, I particularly like the line ‘dormant memories of a future’, which hints of the journey we are all on – to somewhere. Once again, you seem to suggest that the dreaming world is somehow more ‘real’ than the waking world. Either can be horrific but this world is finite, at least, whereas our dream go on ad finitum.
