Dreams

What dreams could you have living in the shabby,
cursed house where even the spirits
were suppressed and choked to death?

Figuring I could not go beyond
the books I read, the movies I saw,
the life I was living
I went with the flow
my dreams lingering in the air

And then you came
Of a few dreams which soared to the sky
and others that died un-materialized
you’re better than the best dream
I’ve ever had

The green has come back to the park
thanks to the rains during the month
But it’s still as dry
as a dream having been conceived
but which has not yet been born

The frenzied ticket purchase
of the Mega Millions lottery is over
The fantasies of spending the $1.5 billion jackpot
have died but the possibilities
brought short-lived dreams
to millions of people
over the past several days

Would you rather dream
ephemeral dreams
Or live your life dreamless
for the rest of your life?

Life is but a dream after all
no matter what dream it is
isn’t it?
