Syllabic fantasy. Sharing dreams.

Close your eyes
Then take a deep breath
Imagine
Envision
Listen;to see what I see,
And share in my dreams

For dreams, don’t come as easy, to us all.

Beneath the twilit borealis
Within iridescent woodlands
A Phoenixsong swoons and swirls
Velvet as a whisper
Mellifluous of tune
Where fireflies dance
and enchant,
New life
Glows

I can see an orchid’s gleam; and feel the peace that beams…

Yonder
Slight to the right
Adventure beckons all
Discover flavours of your soul
Believe
Let the tears flow,then-let-them-go.
Fly astride a Griffin
Tame your dragon
Be free

Will you not wonder, explore, and revel without fear?

Khaal or Khaleesi
This dreamworld belongs to you
Hope is your birthright

A realm of new beginnings.

Lore tells us
The dead do not dream
Do not hope
That life is desire
And belief; its key

So dream sweet, dream sour, and dream like a child. Dream an eternity, all in one night.

Now open your eyes
Let these images soothe through-
your mind
For when nightmares become real!
And trauma chases dreams away
Then take my hand,
and dream with me today

Dreams dreamt alone are incomplete.

Dreams dreamt together become reality.

    Imagination lets writers share their hopes.
    That rope bridge looks a tad… well tricky – I think I’d rather fly over it!
