Meteor Shower - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

I had a
Dream that
I was watching

A meteor shower
While it was actually
Occurring outside

In the
Conscious
World-

the dream created
Audacity within
Me-

I could see something
In my past-
I could see something
In my future-

It's coming


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I actually had a dream that I was watching a meteor shower while it actually occurred outside. I had seen something online that told me the peak of the shower would be that night. Perhaps this sparked the dream? Anyhow, I found it significant.

    We dream reality as it slides by, but knew of its imminence stimulating the subconscious. (Report) Reply
