Treasure Island

Kaila George

(20 October 1962 / New Zealand)

A Dream Like State


Imaginary realms of old
Make believe and fantasies
Virtual magic beings of light
Universe of dreams unfold

Kings and Queens
Bow to fate
And lead their Realm
To prosperity

Goblins, Vampires
Fight with glee
Trading blood
For sanity

Gossamer wing
Flutter in the breeze
Fairies dance
On moonlight and sunbeams

Dragons fly to the
Mountains so high
Cascading fires
On wings of the night

Unicorns, and fairies plight
Prance and dance
To the lute of love
That cupid's play

The small child within
Stirs while asleep
And smiles to self
In a dream like state

You wake you sigh
And dream no more
You've lost the plot
Of reality

You stretch and yawn
In twilights dawn
And smile to yourself
Let's dream once more

So quietly you snuggle in
Sweet dreams are what
The slumber brings
Faint smile
A whisper of a sigh
You dream once more
Of all your fantasies
