A LOVER'S DREAM COME TRUE

It's a perfect day, for me to dream
a perfect dream tonight,
when many, many lovers convene
in a perfect site, to honor everything
that is -
even the largeness of light,
or tiniest pebble of earth,
the fog within some brains,
problems unsolved,
stains that won't dissolve,
the good within oceans,
the horror they contain,
even the real in us,
what we sometimes feign.

Tonight, exquisitely dressed,
it's nudity the lovers celebrate,
wildly, unashamedly expressed
in words, unveiling life.

They deserve to have a ball,
these lovers who write
with blood of their hearts,
so that others may glimpse
inside,
see how words,
like tiny golden lines,
connect dots.

What's best about my dream,
what makes it perfect
I honestly confess,
is that in this community of lovers,
I actually partake.



Happy Anniversary to Dverse Poets, celebrating 3 years of opening their hearts to poets all over the globe. Hope every day for you, is a ball.

  4. You are right, Myran. Celebrating three years of dVerse means celebrating the words we write with the blood of our hearts, the nudity and honesty we display in our poems.

  6. Myrna, you are right. Poets are lovers, attentive to and honoring the details of existence, and in a sense, baring ourselves to the world.

  7. LOVE is the common denominator after all, the answer, the solution to so many of the world's problems & issues; & poetry is the common universal currency, the lyrics for the music, fodder for the muses--& it is our very viscera we share, stripped of masks, free of shackles; very nice celebratory poem.
