    If a dream could be touched
    how would it feel?
    Would it feel like the air,
    or something that's real?
    Would it feel feathery
    like a wing of a dove
    or fluffy like one of the clouds
    that hover above?
    Do you suppose it would be
    warm as a lover's embrace
    Or sizzling hot like the embers
    from a freshly stoked fireplace
    Perhaps it would feel cool as
    the morning breeze in September
    or possibly be bitterly cold like
    icy sleet hitting my face in December
    Would those dreams be wet
    like trickling tears when I cry
    or like a deserted desert
    parched and dry?
    Contemplating these possibilities
    leads me to conclude what's true
    that dreams have varied textures
    just like the touch of you...

    Nice poem watzinaname, it had me thinking about the dreams I forget when I just wake, but the feeling is so wonderful I want to dive back into bed and try to remember what it was! Dreams do touch u like that

    Yes, it would be great to know just what some dreams feel like. Thank you for your kind words sonnee01.
    Wisdom7, happens to me too, those dreams we would like to know more about, and we can't seem to make hide nor hair of them once we fully awake. Thank you poet.
    Some dreams are certainly like that Mzblkangel. Thank you for responding so.
