dVerse Thursday 3/28/13


















Tonight I dream, I dream for me
my  deepest  thoughts are my own
drifting out of my comfort zone
what wonders will my eyes see

challenging the veils of night
cautious  swipe of a heavy sword
will the battle reap a reward
in a distance horizon of light

fighting the throes of  freedom
exposing, deceit and poverty
my soul grieves for the unknown
visions of a peaceful kingdom
within the realm of uncertainty
I humbly bow at the golden throne

author's note: a bit of a challenge at dVerse hopefully, I pulled this together right.

  1. Challenging themes indeed: the paradox of uncertainty being the only certainty.

    1. Nico,

      Thanks for the comment and I agree form poetry is sometimes a struggle for me as I like to just flow in free verse at times.

  6. To see the trials of man in your dreams, face them down and turn to prayer, that is the type of aware, empowering dreams we should all have.

  11. So often those deep thoughts come at night, don't they? And so often they ARE outside one's comfort zone...almost haunting. And for sure a peaceable kingdom would be nice!

  12. Jeepers I wish I could remember a spiritual writing I once read in a book called "God in All Worlds" Edited by Lucinda Varley. Anyway for me dreams are reminders of how we co-create our life. Nice write about life's reality and dreams created from it.

  13. Nicely done, a stream of consciousness - like those that come to you just in the stages of falling into sleep, or just as you begin to awake - cast into the sonnet mold.
