Wings of dreams

As the morning sun blazes a trail
through the shear curtains of my room,
I roll over to see
the form sleeping next to me.
What dreams flutter through the mind?
Far away places.
Cold mountain lakes
caressed by melting snow.
Picnic tables overlooking a battered bridge
and a slow moving river.
Starlit skies
through the glass roof
of a downtown hotel.
Children's smiles and laughter.
The silly, silent actions
of a hand puppet
professing its love.
Reading a favorite bedtime story
to a child.
A full moon
trying desperately
to cast its glow
on roses in bloom.
A warm stone bench
in a hidden garden spot.
Beach grass swaying
in a warm summer breeze
with the echoing sound of waves
providing the rhythm for the dance.
A tango.
A soft, lingering kiss,
tender, full of love.
Strong but gentle arms
encircling, holding, loving.
A lone owl caught
in the headlights of a car,
silent, staring, wise and unafraid.
Raven.
Eagles.
Heron.
Falling then flying.
Soaring on wings.
Wings made from dreams.

I held my daughter in my arms last night while she was sleeping and I could tell that she was dreaming. I wonder what she dreams about. It's all so new.

Beautiful poem, MM. You end it wonderfully too. The editor in me wants to tell you to do this to it:

Raven.
Eagles.
Heron.
Falling then flying.
Soaring on wings
Made from dreams.

Good work, friend.
