' LAST NIGHT


I dreamed of you again last night
As I lay upon my bed,
A passionate, exotic dream
Unraveled in my head;

No doubt 'twas something that I ate
Just prior to retiring
That set the stage for such a dream
With all synapses firing;

I don't recall the details now
Although the warmth remains,
It must have been delicious
As this fire in my veins;

I do recall on wakening
That sleep induced caress
That suddenly released me
As I tumbled from my nest,

And much as I attempted
To resume that precious dream,
'Twas fleeting and I lost it,
Pure frustration made me scream!

I dreamed of you again last night,
It must have been exquisite -
My dream life beats reality...........
That isn't fair now, is it?

    Hi Linda. I loved this piece, with its 'spot on' rhyme and flow. There is such precision in the work that it flows so sweetly right the way through. Your descriptive powers are legendary. Now to the content...... I know exactly what you mean about dreams - v - reality, and not wanting them to be disturbed. I've not had the pleasure of an erotic dream encounter. However, 'winning the lottery' crops up time and time again, and I usually wake back into misery just before they hand over the cheque. I had to look you up, after your great comment on my forum piece. I hope you are keeping well. I still have a little wind
    Best Regards
    Steve

    Again another poem filled with life..I mean true it is about a dream. But I loved the manner in which you brought your dream to life.Your opening stanza is very arresting. Kept the reader interested through out.
    And in a way a very amusing poem too..

    Linda, our dreams often go that way it is sad to say. Mine were always reaching for the unattainable. Top marks for this lovely poem and thanks for sharing it with us my friend.

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
