Have you ever…

Have you ever looked up to the sky and wished to be up there? 

Have you ever seen a bird fly and wished you could as well? Have you ever been so in awe you forget how to speak? Have you ever been rendered speechless by a day? Or an avalanche of thoughts that overwhelm the brain? Or maybe a sea of dreams that reach to the sky? If you wished to be a bird then don’t be shy, you can soar on wings never to let your dreams die. If you forget how to speak let a stanza and rhyme tell it in time. If day stunts your speech then dream for a week of the day just passed and dance in the memories of the wonders you had. If an avalanche threatens your thoughts, go create snowmen and makes angels in spots. If a sea of dreams is all you see then my dear dreamer you  succeed. For, you’re a bird floating in the sea, your poems are waves that erode at time reveal the secrets it’s left to hide, your memories amass and flow with time and fill the ocean with each passing drift, the Avalanche melts and you’re left a sea, now my dear dreams look up and see. A dream is a journey, a beginning, a breath, that’s why when they come true there’s nothing to be said. Being speechless or lost is simply a cause of the wonders we chase in spite of our flaws

Have you ever looked up at the sky? You don’t need to make a wish since you’re already there


A Christmas Dream

Christmas time is here again, it’s the time of year to give to others and spend our hours with one another. However on this cheery day, these dreams of mine are full and plenty.

They go like this:

I wake in the morn of this blissful day, I run down the stairs with much haste. The snow has fallen, the windows frosted. There’s a small fire in the fireplace and the others begin to awake. We surround the tree, beaming with lights, and we divide up the presents with their treasures hidden and wrapped just right. As the paper is shed, new memories are had, and the morning is filled with splendor.

Once this dream is over and my family parts ways, the last thing to behold is each sweet embrace. However, something is missing, and it’s the sight of your face. That smile and presence is a present for all, but for me its gift greater than all. For that afternoon once the others have gone, the eve can be spent under the cherry tree, make snowmen and snowangels and have hot chocolate and tea. Who knows on such a magical day one may even see a sparrow fly across the sky. But all I know is my Christmas dream cannot be completed without thee. Worry not for there are times and days to come, with wishes to make and songs to be sung. So sing a carol with me in mind and enjoy this day with those there who I know are so kind. Do not dream so much that you withdraw from them but enjoy this day of joys and benevolence. Merry Christmas to all and to you have a beautiful day!

A present is something you give to another, I give to you words from you favorite brother, we share in these dreams, they meet at the seems, and all is here before us. Take in a breath and breathe today, for we receive and give on this bountiful day. Let the wonders around mystify you as their bliss you survey, and as know that all has been given and at the feet we lay of a bigger dreamer who dreamt us up. For, if we are dreaming the the dream wasn’t a dream by us but a dreamer dreamt of the dreamers dreaming and thus the dreaming dream. So dream today as the Holidays sail by, and know that our time each day is one of a kind.

I Dreamed A Dream

I Dreamed a dream…

of days to come not those that have passsed.

I certainly do not wish to dream of my past. 

I yearn to dream of the far off times,

The countless lands I have yet to see,

Roaming hills and sailing the sea,

A tinted sky full of breath.

Filling my soul with the light of the night,

The dreams I dream I shan’t soon forget
