A Dream Poem by Valerie Dohren

A Dream

Rating: 4.9

Today I slipped into a dream
And saw a better world
A world of peace and gentleness
Before my eyes unfurled

And in my fantasy beheld
A vision of mankind
All set beneath a bow of fire
In glory full enshrined

His voice was singing so in tune
With all that was around
That such a heav`nly melody
Did o`er the earth resound

And all the hands that owned contempt
Were clasped together tight
To form a ring of unity -
`Twas such a splendid sight

Then all the eyes that never saw
How wondrous life could be
So glinted through the bow of fire -
It surely dazzled me

For all humanity became
As just one beating heart
Together joined in harmony
Thus no more set apart

At night he gazed upon the stars
By day towards the sun
To mingle with the fruitful earth
With all he was at one

Then all the trees bowed down in awe
All creatures danced and played
All flowers spread their petals wide
As `neath the sun they swayed

(But this was just a wistful dream
One that may never be
A vision in a saddened heart -
`Twas just a fantasy)

Today I slipped into a dream
And saw a better world
Where sixteen billion gemstones flashed
Which in her hair were purled

A magnificent Dream which made me really emotional. The lines For all humanity became As just one beating heart Together joined in harmony Thus no more to set apart are such golden words which sing a symphony in my ears and are ever echoing! A fantastic noble dream-I wish with all my heart it turns true!

I love the flow of the beautiful narrative poem. A subtly penned and nicely encapsulated train of thoughts depicting the unveiling of Paradise on the occasion of Coming Of The Lord. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem THE PHOENIX STRANGLER.
