Sometimes near dawn,
I awake from a sudden dream,
a drifting gossamer sigh
that makes me stir in pain;
flotsam of a wrecked desire,
drifts and bobs in my mind and eyes
and the miles are not between
as decades disappear;
as logs strewn on a jagged road
shimmering like a mirage,
thoughts force my mind to stop
and a shudder runs through my heart.
then a glimmer of light through the drapes
breaks this unmagical spell

and in silent prayer I say,
I am glad for this life that I have
and that in it you're only a dream
that sometimes disturbs my dawn.


Copyright, 2004, Gloria Gay

Your writing takes the reader on the journey with you. That's good poetry when imagination is sparked and emotions are touched. Thanks for the ride.
