Dreams From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
I stand dreaming

totally defenseless
whilst entering lands
as if swimming
leaving my own

as a leaf in autumn
pushed around by
gusts of wind

to eventually land
in the comfort of
earth and there

I wait for a new
me to come
to pass my head
as on a pillow I

dream of new life

  1. You have somehow managed to make death seem pleasant; instead of making it seem like end of a life you have made it look like the beginning of another. It is amazing how you have done that. Kudos!!!

    • I appreciate your comment cause I wasn’t to sure about this picture, being so different from the others, but it had that ethereal, dreamy look, that complements the poem well, I thought. So thank you for your feedback Anne.

  2. “California Dreaming” has many senses. I seem to always liked your poetic ways of dealing with the immaculate senses but never could attach the compliments, as we appear and disappear plunging into a life bustle, unplugging and forgetting. Sometimes I think even the words are not enough to me to express what can be felt.
