Hidden Dreams

artwork by Jeanie Tomanek



On small white wings she flew
to the top of the burnt red tree

basketful of golden dream dust
sprinkling it over a disappearing land

man sleeping on his belly,  concrete bed
white dove hovering with love overhead

full moon face, reflections in the night
golden hands praying for morning sunlight

  1. Hidden dreams?

    Aren't most dreams really encoded? That seems to be the gist of what I have read about them.

    I had a dream about my brother-in-law last night. He used to love to go fishing, and I would go with him. He died back in 2000, but we went fishing last night... ;o)

    I wonder what symbolism... what hidden meaning there is within that dream?

    I hope you have had a great weekend!

    1. Shoes,

      So glad to see you my friend. How are you? I would have to say most dreams are encoded you just have to try and find the answers.

      How nice of your brother to come for a visit and doing something he loves to do. If that were my dream I would be happy. Fishing is symbolic and I think it would remind me to slow down and enjoy the quiet moments of life or perhaps, you are fishing for a new
      understanding. I would be willing to explore this with you in more depths. Please email if you want to expand on this dream.

      I hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend!

  7. You and dreams
    Come by streams
    That I know
    As they glow
    Within each screening
    There in lies the meaning

    1. Good Morning,

      I do have a love for dreams
      and riding moonbeams..
      gazing at the stars listening
      to strumming guitars in the night
      waiting for the break of sunlight

  19. Wait, what happened to my first comment?

    I wrote something like: "Well done! I thought 'owl' right away because my mind linked 'knowledge' to 'Athena' and thus to her symbolic bird. And after that hit in the first stanza, it seemed to fit for all the other ones!
