A Walk Inside A Dream

Took a walk inside a dream,

seemed the same,

each waking moment,

a breath of wonder

then wander back inside

visit old friends

stir memories of an

attitude

the sort of look in an eye

when we might fall into

the shell of our selves

inside the dream

everything happens

we sometimes wish away

from ourselves.

The next day

When a conscious reminder

that dream last nigh

look around the space

the people drifting by

could be there then

might be there

now

waiting for an arrival

every stone unturned

when the natural

tendency might be to scream

inside a dream

taking a walk

a wander

into a waking day

I glanced at my post count today, and found myself at 999. So I am using this, my 1000th post to thank the people of WordPress that have embraced my work for the last three years.

This is me in my early twenties …

So, I dedicate this 1000th post to all of you, the readers and friends on WordPress whose encouragement, and feedback have kept me intrigued to such a degree I post an average of two poems a day. Certainly theory out there suggests that with practice anyone can improve. I do hope that eventually becomes the case for me. Thanks so much for reading everyone! -Thom
