Silence











under a full moon leaving the day behind
high above in a midnight sky planets align

slipping into the soft arms of a mystical dream
walking in silence along the crystal stream

before me stood a man, guardian from another time
searching his dark haunting eyes for a symbolic sign

guide to the upper world in the pause of night
whispering trees, secrets under starlight

distant sound, the caw of a  giant winged bird
slicing dense fog , forest stillness can be heard

swooping low, swiftly he snatches me unaware
soaring the twinkling heavens with the giant bear

high on a cliff , a bed of twigs, mud & grass
place of refuge, wild & free, below a river of glass

here in the warmth of the nest, I will lay my dreams
nurturing each thought as they hatch under moonbeams

a vision, quickening  pace..somewhere in space
piercing eyes full of hope, I gaze upon your face

from my healing pouch I pull a white stone
pure in love, brush it with a kiss, I moan

over the canyon wall, I toss it feather light
into the river below,  a dream takes flight

A vision in the silence of life...

posted for dVerse - writing about being unplugged..so this is about being unplugged in the night via a dream..I took this picture during the last full moon. sharing with Poets United Pantry #161

  4. gorgeous photograph. Always enchanted by the moon, especially the full moons. Really neat idea here, the dream angle I hadn't thought of but is in itself the essence of being unplugged. Really nicely done here. Thanks

    1. Hi Fred,

      Thanks for the writing challenge..I always enjoy a full moon and try to capture pictures if I can. I guess the best time to truly be unplugged is when we are sleeping no distractions.

    1. I always try to listen to my dreams there was no fear in this dream..a guardian was there and the bird brought me to a warm nest to hatch bigger dreams in life. I rather enjoyed the adventure. Thank you for your comment.

      I currently do not interpret dreams for readers but, if you would like to share one you can email me.

  7. I love the moon inspiration and delving into the mystical dream ~ This is my favorite part:

    high on a cliff , a bed of twigs, mud & grass

  8. Being unplugged is grand
    Just one with dream land
    no rhythm or rhyme
    Which may be a crime
    Just all in ones self
    Hopefully no dreaming of an elf
    Just the moons glow
    Or a hawk's crow
    Can a hawk crow?
    Would a crow know?
    It all is sublime
    Unless of course you end up dreaming of a mime

    1. Hi Pat,

      No rhythm or rhyme this time
      but, who knows what will come
      next in the land of dreams for
      a couple of light hearted fools (lol)
      always nice to see you at my sea..

    2. lol blogger doesn't like light hearted fools I think
      As it just now had this post show up in my blogroll giving me the link

  10. A lot of people think writers are a bit crazy when they say they dreamed a poem, novel or story. They really are the best source though. Lovely writing.

    1. Hi Paul,

      That is true but, many people do have revelations in dreams that inspire them to create. In my case via a poem. The dream spoke to me and I decided to put it to words to share. Thank you for the lovely reply. Nice to meet you!
