Dream Weaver Spiral

I want to weave a dream
With skeins of moonbeams
Tender most threads of early sunrise
Crisscrossed with shimmering silver
Lining of pregnant clouds dark and bloated
Held in place end to end by a luscious moon and a ripe
Orange sun that has dipped halfway into the horizon


This precious and fragile dream shall be
Cradled by rainbows that are colored by the
Choicest emotions of love and hope and desires
And cravings and courage and decisiveness and
Wherein shall meet that one special lover with
His beloved and together they shall weave a
Brand new dream of their own in a new spiral


Dream weaver shall thus be remembered to posterity
Spiraling into eternity driven by unicorns of twinkling
Dreams woven by lovers sworn to one another forever
And ever and the various constellations and stars shall
Bear witness to this covenant arrived at and renewing
With every new spiral of love encircling the heavens
End to end joined by milky ways riding on falling stars

The Great Escape

Climbing rung by rung

Rope of thoughts strung

Reaching top of my crown

I took to wings, free thereon 


Escaping from abundant thatch

Allowing mind’s chick to hatch

On cloud nine I soared on high

To realize self like in do or die


Finding exit in the maze of my mind

Where thirsty soul was woefully confined

Doggedly I plugged on and plodded on

Bumbling, finally exit was stumbled upon



Soaring higher and higher into ether

And bright celestial vistas deep azure

They beckoned me closer and closer

Gleefully I scurried forward rather eager


Suddenly there was a mighty yank

Overactive mind had played a prank

Like a deflated balloon, my bird sank

Tall dream rudely interrupted, tanked
