Awake Poem by Deborah Cromer


Rating: 4.9

It takes one thought to begin a dream
Reality and fantasy together to form a team
Some of this and some of that, it is clear
Acting upon each other, with nothing to fear
One step forward to begin each new day
All senses alive at once do play
The mind is awake with too much time to see
Looking and searching, begging to be set free
Trapped and holding on, never to let go
We travel daily from the high to the low


a poem is born a theory enunciated a song sung, a sonnet forgotten just termini of thought….. it meanders; moves forms new ruts irrigate new lands sauté hearts anew and sing new songs thought moves on

Nice rythmn and rhyming. Dreams we have do reflect our lives, I prefer to live in present time, and reflect on how life is going.
