Slow, deliberate dream sea; washes over
Life’s impurity. Emotion’s fury!
Take hold and sink slow! This line in between
The truth we see and the truth we know;
Well beneath the mind, the emotions flow.
Great tempest of honesty, whose waters–
Ushering the journey to the inside,
Are open wide; in this dream sea we stow.
A lit’ral bride to things already known,
But from which we hide from our own true mind.
What we see, a separate truth in dream;
Stronger still, our own desire to know
The truth that lies beneath our own disguise.
So in the dark of night, our self takes flight,
Sinking slow in dream waters we all go.
Emotions captive! Lay back and low,
Float among those things we’re afraid to know.
Dream’s tale is long and deliberately slow,
So slowly go; And dream’s sweet truth’ll be shown.
Sea of dreams- through your dream sea we grow.
One thought on “Dreams”
For me the poem really reminded about self-honesty and inner desire not to hide from self, to know and the dream sea allows vision. Thank-you. Enjoyed this poem.
