Of idle thoughts and truer dreams

Spread the love

And I asked myself is this a dream
one my lips should not have kissed,
felt the wind bring in drops of rain
and reform all that had gone awry. 

To believe this to be passion such
that thin are layers of woe left behind-
as dawn red sweeps the distant sky
restoring faith in tear-dimmed eyes,
 I asked myself is this a dream?

    “And I asked myself is this a dream
    one my lips should not have kissed”

    I adore that opening — very Emily Dickinson.

  16. hedgewitch says:

    There is so much we don’t know, but at times like the one in this poem, perhaps knowing is not important. Lovely.

  18. Old Egg says:

    I certainly hope it is not a dream, for as the years roll away it is comforting to remember all you have done and the joy that you have had. Although tears do come readily when you recall such beautiful times…as I know well. Beautifully written Sanaa.

      Thank you so much, Robin 🙂 so glad you liked it ❤️

  21. Jamztoma says:

    I ask that of me a lot of times.

    “Is this a dream?”

    when I am in heaven or when something beautiful is upon me or when I’m in love…

    and this poem is just so dreamy. Lovely write. Good day!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, James 🙂 so glad you liked it ❤️

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Sherry 😀 so good to see you ❤️

  23. Truedessa says:

    Sometimes there is a thin line between dreams and fantasy. One needs tears to cleanse the eye so the vision becomes clearer. Beautiful words that I can relate to at times.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Truedessa 🙂 so glad you liked it ❤️

  24. Bev says:

    There are those who believe “what you see is what you get” and that it’s possible to “image your way to success”. Is it a dream … or a reality just beyond your grasp, waiting to be experienced? (Philosophically speaking, of course!)

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Beverly ❤️

  25. Thotpurge says:

  29. Mary says:

    Sometimes real life is dreamlike, isn’t it?

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Mary ❤️

  30. It is hard to believe in dreams come true especially if they have gone awry before….but there are little things that will let you know for sure….pinch yourself and go with it I say!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Donna ❤️
