OH FAIR TIS LIFE!

Oh fair tis life!
like the meant dream
which bows to hearts
my maiden comes
like a music which
cobbled stones sing
(the horse knows)
and like my own
expectation comes
but she with a carriage
and mine just love
upon the air!

ON LY DR EAMS

River dreams slipping rocks
and i swore i had a place
across your shores too
i thought rock but life
gave me pebbles to eat
and no one i think loves
the weaker one but i know
heat and life are a part
of tiny movements

always know i sometimes
dream but the current
moves me \\ i think
a revelation can catch me
but the river flows
like
time, what
space too
across your shores
i thought rock but life
gave me pebbles to eat

and i’m only just me
so i can only sing
“the river of life
can take you down
if only you believe,
if only you believe,
in dreams…”

FAVORITE MEMORIES

Most of my favorite memories
are cast within the daily grind
a trip or two across the way
from morning to evening light
But if I am brave enough to say
and sometimes I am not
(but not today)
the very best of memories
are the ones I make within my dreams
And the rarest of all make their own

OCEAN AND FOREST

In my dream i rode a wave
not one made of ocean
but that of heavenly
love — that quenches me
and i touched the skin
not of human but so much more
she had daises in her hair
and a smile of sunlight too
we decided to run down there
where the road forks in two
and ran toward the woods
where the love-green hide

the trees from the forest
what do you see in life
that before you is a dream
but greater is the forest

Love is an ocean and sun
and passion that green forest
flowers flotsam and candy
jetsam between love and life

Oh I wish for that beach!
where life can dig toes-sand
and umbrella laughter song
a salty wind caressing us!

A HUNDRED POEMS – 038

We are all born
into a dream
so deep that most
never awaken

THE BEACH

Piece_No_17-110811 - Scentless Apprentice
(c) E.P. Robles

there were orange sherbet skies

a blanket of deep blue waves

and a white beach comforter too

 

I said to you my dear lover

let this be a dream for life

and never awake me or you

 

and i want you to know

deep within my heart

i never want you to go

 

let’s play with the water

and sing with the dolphin

i comb your hair with a shell

 

and darling never awake

dream upon my tan shoulder

and i will kiss you forever

WHAT A DREAM SHOULD BE

Once I dreamed this I did
upon a cloud in sunlit light
not a hint of nightshade
nor a glint of sorrow
and dreams such as this
— this what dreams should be
made of vanilla-kiss lip
and love-making laughter
lightly floats my soul
between the glades-bee
and through rivers fresh
across mountains too
above the land-dew
and through hearts-two
this dream I had once
and stays forever now
what a dream should be

OUR DIVINE DREAMS

terminus across my soul

a movement
compressed

the light is ancient
and I am old

what power say you
devoid of youth like
father time — eons ago

the vagabond
begs more

No! No! No! — pleading
be gone this illusion
a single note slicing
passion between notice

We are not who we are
who we be
not what thing
that creeps between —

our
divine dreams

WISH TO DREAM

I plant my wish
within the soil
of my dreams
and dream I do
of golden light
to fall upon
the seed to grow
within the morrow
upon my wake
the wish-to-dream
becomes the truth
for all to know

DREAMING LIFE

i caught myself
dreaming     myself

streaming lines

disjointed     fairy tales

a seam i tripped
and pulled it back
and saw my self

dreaming life
