what dreams




a writing desk ill named
sits littered like a forest in fall
covered in curling and useless pages


words flow on crumpled waterfalls
in a stream around the chair legs
and the water is oh so cold
through the window, hiding maybe
from the troubadour’s bane
a figure reclines atop an ancient picnic table
a smile blushes her cheeks
the observer left to wonder
what dreams fly to her there

  1. Beautiful! I love the idea of the dreams flying to the lady through the observer’s eyes. Almost unreal in many ways with this poem.

    I just adore the romanticism behind it – appeals to the soppy side in me! It’s just lovely to read something as etherial and dream-like as this. Very distracting 🙂
