I dreamt of stars
of roses
before I was sleeping
and as I was waking
I was thinking
of a pitch black sky
full of what they never see
because they say
what they see
visibly
and even name it
once it appears to them
for us

I was picturing a garden
Full of something
So abundant and they don't see it
Because they say
What they see
when they see it
How they see it
As they smell it
But no one knows of it
For us

I stood staring
At my own hands
Making my own words
In my my own way
In my own time
To mix with yours
(and yours)
Overlapping with mine
To give birth to whats ours
As mothers and fathers
Raising generations of speech
For us

I sipped my water
And sat it down
Licked my lips and closed
My eyes
Closed my ears
Adjusted the contrast
And opened my heart
For us

Living our lives
Wishing upon Black stars
And watering translucent roses
surely and deliberately
creating a home
out of poetic dreams & meanings
means we always
have somewhere we come from
and some place to go back to
All for us!!!

Wow, Dyme...

I stood staring
At my own hands
Making my own words
In my my own way
In my own time
To mix with yours
(and yours)
Overlapping with mine
To give birth to whats ours
As mothers and fathers
Raising generations of speech
For us
My poetic soul is glad you came home!

Awesome dedication!! Thank you!:)
