She Dreams


In a room small
like this,
only alittle smaller,
In a far away town
like this,
on this night
sleeps my piece

Across this distance
the aura follows my piece,
like the lips that part at command
to allow pass the flash
of a smile so sincere born,
It is the breath
that stops my breath,
the laughter
that is mine,
the heart beat
i cannot do without.
But what can i do
across this distance,
but sigh?

My mind is helpless.
It floats across town
over valleys and rivers..
Carried by the unseeing eye
and unrelenting wishes,
for,
in a room small
but smaller than this,
In a far away town
one like this
on this night
sleeps my love.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
