A child’s daydreams;
They come, then, go,
They crystalize,
Then melt, like snow.

The young child plays;
She knows no troubles,
Her daydreams drift,
Like clouds of bubbles.

Her life, so simple now,
No stress, no strife,
May this remain so,
The whole of her life.
Abraham 6d
I bang my elbow in the shower,
takes a second to realize why

not that I was careless
or enjoy pain, again

but the cascara
cowbell, saxophone,

hands around my shoulders
that are not my own

sunlight squeezing lemons,
flower dress upon the hill

potato enchilada
still
digesting
messing
with my footwork

    possibly

maybe

    I was careless.

Showers are not the place for salsa.
Zywa 7d
Dreams tell a truth
that you don't want to know yet, but
on a divan, you can speak freely

to an outsider
who understands you
and explains your secrets

that everyone can see
and many whisper
shame upon it

Wealth is wasted, and
anyone who makes a comment about it will be hit
with doublespeak and disappear as penalty

for his brutal lies, his slander
and high treason; even the worst plagues
do not bring insight and humility

But sometimes, from the blue
the sense is common enough
and dreams come true
Dictatorial repression

Joseph explains dreams (Genesis 40-41)

Trader Yuya became counselor of the Pharaohs Thut-mosis IV (1397-1388) and Amen-hotep III (1388-1351). He was an immigrant in Egypt, living in Akhmim (Upper Egypt) at the Nile, downstream of the royal city. Given the spelling of his name, he was probably the same person as Joseph, who later was added as the eleventh son on the family tree of Jacob.

Honeysuckle lips far away somewhere
I can no longer reach even in my sleep
But for one night you sweetly did reside
In the neurons vibrating behind my eyes
In a pastel scene gleaming golden pristine
A sunset on grass unimaginably green

Honey brown eyes sweet and bright
You were the only star I recall that night
A kiss so gentle it brought me to tears
Taming my pain and hushing my fears
Skin alabaster under the moonshine
That wonderful night that you were mine

Honey bees could never leave such a sting
As waking in bright sunlight without you
And when I rise from tonight's dreaming
The fate's will have had their fun scheming
For more details will have dissipated
My hopes of returning surely eliminated

Drowsily dreaming the dreary day away,
I lean 'gainst the sill, looking out on the city.
Deep sighs cascade from my open mouth
Before I close my eyes and hum a diddy,
Remembering the people who've shown me pity,
As the train rattles on heading south.
No one Apr 13
I love the times when he’s playful,
and I find he stimulates my mind.
He sang a pretty song just to me,
and I tried my hardest not to cry.
I dreamt of holding him close last night,
I was craving the warmth of his skin.
In the dream I tasted every inch,
and nothing mattered but his touch.
I woke up and thought that I knew bliss,
but at the same time it wasn’t enough.
I always need him close by for one more kiss,
so I think I'll stay in my daydream with him.
Dreaming
Awoke to a different reality
Strange feelings
flowing on my body
Strange sensations
got me shivering
Do , I stand up
no I will just sit here
maybe , I will awake
might still be asleep
Hope , I am just dreaming
This would be a
a messed up reality
Dripping walls
Colors twisted
Sensations crawling &
tapping
So , I am just gonna sit here
till , I awake back to
reality

in this starry night
where the moon's nowhere to be found
the glitters in the space brightens
and in these specks of stardust
each containing a soul, a dream
wishes waiting to be fulfilled
they burn, worth a several lifetime
a significance, that the promises
tied in your fate, will be done
maybe in another timeline, different life

in the eyes of the dreaming
this night sky contains the hopes
of different beings looking
on that same night sky, filled with
stars shining on a dark space
they all find peace in the meaning
there is light in the dark
and that no matter how dim it is
it's still dazzling, its beauty perpetual
the dreaming once again prepares
maybe in another night
the dreams will be done
to remind the dreaming to be hopeful whatever the situation might be

the sun dies gently behind the hills as I
wander through the pastel cloud’s apricot-nuance
with floating eyes of vacant iridescence.

and the sky lost all of its mighty blue,
now glimmering in a nonchalantly lilac hue
one could only describe as the universe spilled passion.

darkness manifests on the canvas of atmosphere,
its golden streaks devoured by mischievous glee
and we all sigh and finally close our eyes.

so that this journey remains all that we see.

Daydreaming about you,
Daydreaming about your babies,
Lost when you became dust,
Daydreaming about fulfillment,
Daydreaming of falling in love,
Madly, sadly, surprised,
How I lost control at your touch.

The street lights on my block died,
An asthma attack has almost won,
But I pry myself out of bed,
To get a look at this great dark,
Covering all man-made structure,
Something sinister is out there tonight,
I'm about to barricade the door,
Close the window, and hide until day,
Until I catch a scent that reminds me,
Of you and I, in all of it,
     You lead the way,
Holding my hand,
     Assuring me we are almost there,
I can see your outline braving forward,
     I trust you know what you're doing,
I follow hoping we reach the unknown.

I think about this as my breathing constricts,
Another night of suffocation,
And so I lay down, with the windows open,
Praying I dream of you...
