    I didn't know that
    DREAMS had hands
    that hold me to be breast
    fed on promise
    so I believe that tomorrow
    will come

    I didn't know that
    DREAMS could pull me in
    so that I could inhale her voice
    and emit her sighs through
    my eyes....I see that
    she is LOVE

    [and I and U could be DREAMS
    in the center of a transluscent blue
    sphere.......and WE
    could exist as travelling clouds
    on a circular sky that encompasses
    the universe]

    I didn't know that DREAMS
    could copulate with my mind
    and impregnate my thoughts
    with images of you

    I didn't know that DREAMS
    had hands to hold us in LOVE

    [and U and I
    could be DREAMS that chase each other
    around the rings of Saturn then
    just hang out on the belt of Orion
    or be two galaxies that exchange
    pleasantries over Mt. Zion]

    I didn't know that DREAMS had hands
    that send us into each others arms
    even when we're not
    together.

    Beautiful. Glad my dreams have hands to caress me and hold me tight. Glad my dreams have hands to soothe my aching mental from tyme to tyme. Glad I had the chance to stop by. Breast fed by dreams.....leaves me pondering.

    portraits of beauty...

    painted on canvases of midnight love under a sky of infinite wisdom. share your dreams, poet. let the brush strokes speak of yesterday days where wishes lay out on the front lawn, conversing about today happenings...as they dream about tomorrow things.

    NICE PEACE.
