Where Have the Dreamers Gone

 Where have all the dreamers gone
we need to find the pathway to light
lost in time between dusk and dawn

into a mystical realm, I am drawn
awakening to the magic of night
where have all the dreamers gone

stretching my mind, the wind yawns
in darkness, the white owl takes flight
lost in time between dusk and dawn

seeing with eyes of a new baby fawn
come and  dream with me tonight
where have all the dreamers gone

in a riverbed, pristine dreams spawn
open the gates to heavenly paradise
lost in time between dusk and dawn

believe in your dreams, please hold on
sprout wings let your soul take flight
where have all the dreamers gone
lost in time between dusk and dawn

  1. This poem is so beautiful. I love the white owl in flight. I think we dreamers are suffocating in so much that is cruel and wrong that we dont have time between events to recover enough resilience to react and resist and dream. Perhaps this is a strategy done on purpose. It seems to work.

  2. I love the power of the invitation. And believe the reasoning behind it. So much can be accomplished, delighted in, lived... if we hold on to our dreams.

  3. Oh yes, we have to believe in our dreams. To the question where have all of the dreamers gone, look in the mirror. Smiles. Hope you are doing well, Truedessa. I am waiting for spring. We have snow AGAIN this morning. Sigh.

  5. A vividly written villanelle with a dreamy tone, built up through the choice of repeated lines. I love the idea of dreamers lost in time between dusk and dawn and the phrase ‘the wind yawns in darkness’.

  12. This spun some very enchanting imagery, especially inviting to those who may have checked a wardrobe more than once to see if there was a passage to Narnia.
