A Dream Away

Rebeca Cygnus Photography



Exhausted,  I wipe the last tears
of the day from my eyes, slipping into
a dream under a hunter's moon

Awakening slowly to a new reality
I arise the navigator, on a lucid
road of mysterious adventures

Following the music of my heart
under an October sky, I see a
road stretched out before me

A flock of starlings fly overhead
to whom will your inner voice trill
sing the song of your soul's desire

I wonder how far I must travel
to realize my highest peak
of consciousness is only a
dream away

  2. Oh this is beautiful, True. The highest peak of consciousness only a dream away. I watched the most beautiful movie today called The Storm Boy, about a friendship between a boy and an orphan pelican. Beautiful and both heartbreaking and heartwarming, like life. I cried buckets. I think you would love it.

    1. Hi Sherry,

      I will have to see if I can find that movie. I am sure I will need a box of tissues.

  7. Ah, I like the photo and the poem that you wrote which expressed its meaning. I like the idea that one's highest peak of consciousness is only a dream away. (And hopefully a very GOOD dream!)

  10. Missed you too, True!. It would have been at Pat's most mornings, otherwise. Am ok but distractions came along. Will try to maintain presence as before. Thanks Ma'am!
