If I Dream

If I beat away the shadows,
will the moon’s music drift
in a shining spray of silver
to dazzle-dance in haunting rhythms
till the sun wakes—then

if I rise,
languid as a summer day,
will the murky mist shift
to reveal an azure sky, where geese wing
above in raucous celebration of life?

If I ask moon, sun, geese,
will they tell me the secrets
of why and when and nevermore—
of how time is a dream, and how dreamtime flutters
and flits, like leaves in the wind?

If I dream of you,
of laughter flowering,
dropping seeds in my heart
do you grow and bloom–
to live forever?

It took me all day today to visit and get my message from the poetry Oracle. I took the photo this morning. It’s a beautiful day here.

  1. This is lovely, Merril. It’s like… wondering if you could tell fortunes through nature. I think it’s possible… but I’m in love with nature, and seems you are, too!

  2. Beautiful! I do like this more formal style the Oracle used this week 🙂 And the ending, as everybody says is so lovely. (and the photo, of course).
    We had the same lofty themes too, full of birds and the endless sky.
