A Dream For You - Poem by Patti Masterman

A dream for you
And one for me;
A mermaid's blue,
A symphony,
A secret house
Inside a tree
The dreamworld's full
Of company.

At night we go
To places rare,
Where no one knows
That they are there;
And every dream
A hidden stair,
That takes us to
A new somewhere.

If only dreams
Could overlap
The sleeping seams
Within our nap,
And precious streams
Not on a map
Then other lives,
We could unwrap.

    A fabulous thought! 'The sleeping seams within our nap'- lovely.
    Mind you, there's some minds you'd want to keep well clear of. (Report) Reply

    It is not often I am unsure of what to say about a poem, but here I am, quite speechless. It is not often that I vote on a poem, either, but an exception can be made here, I think. (Report) Reply

    This is so beautiful, and so heartfelt, your dreams and your writing go deep... to the soul. I believe you speak for more than one in this tremendous poem.
    This has such depth of feeling as to truly be put into the realm of 'classic'. Simply wonderful Patti, you have outdone even yourself here. Thanks for sharing this one, I love it. (Report) Reply

    very whimsical and enjoyable. The poem is simply written and speaks softly like a lullaby, proving that a work does not have to be complicated or overly emotional to be great. I really like this. (Report) Reply
