A Conversation with Dreamers

You are more talked about
Than anyone.
Conquerors philosophers
And myth makers have
Sought your counsel.
Your wry smile
Your challenging smirk
Control feelings moods and
Movements while
You elicit hopes dreams
Plans and futures from
Peasants to kings.
In total silence you
Beckon and cast your
Eerie shadows that
Simultaneously create and
Dash lift and support.
Yet they say you are dead
Utterly without even the
Means to support life.
What a contradiction.
You command an
Audience beyond the capacity
Of all the venues ever
You teach and instruct
With an intensity that
Surpasses the most learned
Among us who ever dared
To elevate minds.
And yet you speak not.
With a wink and a nod
Compositions of love leap
From the pages of our most
Masterful musicians.
You see every lover
Hear every promise
Conspire in every romantic
Utterance from the lips
Of fools and Casanovas.
You challenge us to rise
Above ourselves and to
Dream beyond our limits.
And then in one moment of
Time you eclipse even our
Source of life.
Still no one wants to
Live on you while all want to
Live with you…always.

Beautiful, and besides that you have logic as opposed to our dreams, and it all actually ties in together. Cool.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/1/2015
Through your words, the dream lives on.

I agree with Jane and her expression What hum drum world this would be w/o the dreams we weave day in and day out!! J K Roseline
Reviewed by Jane Noponen Perinacci 3/1/2015
I surely enjoy the way you describe the dreamers. What a hum drum world this would be without the poets and writers........the dreamers.

Love ya!
