Whte Dreams  


Leaves lie crinkled and brown

Turn their backs on the autumn sun

The birds fly south across the border

And current carries turbulent water


Up above in the celestial sky

Clouds break down and cry

And rain falls on golden leaves

Falling down from tall trees


And when the rain subsides

The fools watch the wise

Gazing into the pool

Where images are focal


And white dreams never die

Never laugh, never cry



Fallen dreams lie undiscovered

Like golden leaves under cover

And the rain falls to immobilize

As they watch with blindness in their eyes


In the pool, from the rain

Reflected images remain

The wise their images retain

But the fools dream on in vain


And white dreams never die

Never laugh, never cry


White dreams lie undiscovered

Like fallen leaves under cover

And rain falls to immobilize

As they watch with blindness in their eyes

"White Dreams" is poemized with natural symbolism mixed with transcendentalism touching teleological basis and surrealism… It is a poetic philosophical work poetized with a lexicon from a Master of the Verb.

There are food to feed the mind and thoughts to be developed in this profound poem.

I have read, enjoyed and learned from this masterpiece.

Thank You for sharing Your thoughts through art and knowledge.
