Dreams

In quiet night
I silently dreamed
That I could see for miles around

Amidst a garden
Full of clouds
I could barely see the ground

Above the mountains
But below the sky
I await the silent dawn

I sit and stare
And begin to smile
As then I start to yawn

Sleepily I lay
Upon a cloud
Thatís floating up in the sky

I twist and turn
As my fading vision
My dream begins to die

Again I awake
Amongst the clouds
To the sounds of noisy grunts

To my alarm
Iím standing on
The shoulders of giants



 Better to die, and sleep
The never-waking sleep, than linger on
And dare to live when the souls life is gone.

dear trevor:
     this is a beautifully crafted poem... i'm afraid that i'm far too tired to fully appreciate the symbolism and imagery contained herein, but i'll be sure to give it a second read through next time i stumble drunkenly into the land of poesy...

sincerely,
just a little novacaine for your soul

Thanks a lot guys! I enjoy your feedback. Keep it coming.
