Dreams Become Memories

 

Dreams become memories,

and the lines are fading

between here and there…

 

Life’s ephemeral nature is visible

I see it rise & fall

Life is illusion, but so believable

 

As the dreamer becomes aware

that she is dreaming,

everything changes…lucidity  

 

The boundaries dissolve

and the dreamer breathes deeply

inhale, exhale

and our dear dreaming traveler remains steady

 

The mystery keeps her secretswell…

revealing only what the dreamer needs to know

moment by moment

 

Mystical, fluid, velvety darkness

Heart beats tenderly and bravely

As she explores all this

 

Blue colors the mystery

with her many hues and moods

 

There’s a bright, shining sun as well

oranges & reds with stories to tell

but it’s the coolness of the moon

that soothes our dreamer

 

Journeying slowly at times,

and other times racing

through the forest, trees

flying by as if this

hallucination were hurrying

to arrive more quickly

at some undetermined destination

 

Turning, twisting path,

unpredictable & exciting,

flame of curiosity well lit and ever

inspiring, keeping her warm always

 

Uncertainty expands possibility

And she holds her desires

Lovingly, lightly

 

These dreams will one day

become memories, and so she

maintains perspective while

losing herself completely

 

And remembering and forgetting,

on and on,

lost and then found,

her dreams strengthen her

and cultivate a deep longing to return to her true home

 

For you see…

the illusion of this separation

propels her forward

with the back & forth

contraction / expansion

of the pulsing dream beat

of her aching heart   

 

Unfulfilled by the material life she lives,

she yearns for depth and she prays for this…

that she may remain ever connected

and appreciate this (surreal) life

for the gift that it is
