Figments of time

In the night, I chase dreams
under glowing moonbeams
love a figment of my imagination
mind games offering a distraction
 space a magician with sparkling eyes
waiting for the phoenix to arise
from ashes new poetry is born
some dreams are just time worn

The Stuff That Dreams are Made Of

It’s the stuff that dreams are made of
this story of ours, you had me at hello
I first met you in the dreamscape
you a fallen star and me with a broken
wing…two fools crying over life’s
lost songs

I said, find me in the morning light
let not this dream fade away
we’ll build a world where you and I
can reside…we’ll create magic with
our poetic words…confess our desires
follow our hearts

We bonded somewhere in time
and space…
our dreams we needed to chase

and in the morning light, I said,
“find me in the darkness of night”
I will be waiting to pen an adventure
of mythical dragons and searching
for lost treasures in a sea of ghosts

It’s the stuff that dreams are made of
this story of ours, you had me at hello
you found your way back into the heavens
I guess stars are meant to shine
and humans aren’t meant to fly

We bonded somewhere in time
and space…
our dreams we needed to chase

This story of ours is the stuff that dreams
are made of…..every night before I close
my eyes I recall a special star burning
bright....

Darkness Comes

When the darkness comes
invading your days with signs
raven cawing in a warning tongue
red-tailed  hawk descending from the pines
smell of lilies fill the lungs
in the shadows darkness walks a fine line
transformation begins with the last beat of a drum

A Riot of Flowers

I beheld a riot of brightly colored flowers
focusing on the array of  beautiful tulips
shimmering after the morning showers
the park alive with smiling faces and music
there’s a treasured song in my heart, I call ours
poetic lyrics written in the realm of my dreams
the night is filled with unexplainable encounters
how to cultivate the seeds of love, I am clueless
perhaps, today, it's just about enjoying flowers

Northern Lights Delight

 There's a place out there
where the northern lights dance
in dazzling greens and hues of blue

It's a place where dreams connect
with the mystical heavens

It's a place where magic takes
center stage and the heart beats
with the rhythm of night

The Night Sky


The sky deepens in darkness
stars glittering the heavens
welcoming the new moon

Drifting into a sea of dreams
guide me to shores of wisdom
they are waiting for rediscovery

Reset the path of inner harmony
serenade me with ancient songs
touching the frequency of love

Sailing towards morning light
nasty storm rides in on dragon wings
full of fury with lightning speed

clouds release a cleansing breath
watering the earth, filling river beds
soaking the tree roots for growth

Reset the path of inner harmony
rays of light crack through the storm
awakening to the promises of a new day

Box of Dreams

It’s said everyone has a box of unopened dreams
some are lost upon wakening in the morning sun
some pieces drift away in the dense fog of night
some seem out of reach, like trying to touch a star
some are fragments from another time and space
some just don’t find a way to manifestation….

I found a box filled with dreams inside….

How do we open these boxes of unopened dreams
do we set intentions before the sandman appears
do we look for symbols and signs in the crevices of time
do we dare to take a deeper look into hidden places
do we sail our ship of dreams into uncharted waters
do we fight dragons in hopes of finding our internal fire
do we navigate into worlds unknown, for answers
tell me, how do we open this mystery box of dreams

I found a box filled with dreams inside

Perhaps, all it takes it to open your mind to possibilities
dust off the cobwebs, so good dreams can filter through
close your eyes, travel the roads to your place of heart
put yourself center stage, this is your life, your story
find the courage, to open your one-of-a-kind dream box
remember, dreams are meant to be lived…believe...

I found a box filled with dreams inside

One Dance, One Chance

Tell me there’s time for that mystical dance
we’ll create magic under the moon and stars
our worlds meeting, while we have the chance
tell me there’s time for that mystical dance
we’ll write a lyrical ode to poetic romance
there will never be another story like ours
tell me there’s time for that mystical dance
we’ll create magic under the moon and stars
