Dream Catcher - Poem by Nicky Linfield

Life dreams zoom by
Like flies in the sky
they hover and weave
dancing wildly thro' the air
glimpsing at many sights
investigating options then buzzing off,
searching for more,
until an inquisitive one,
explores a little further,
sneaks a little deeper
TRAPPED in a sticky stretchy web
it wriggles and wiggles
it tustles and tastles
thrushing itself deeper and deeper into a mesh
stopping it hopes for free order
yet when it dares look again
it notices it's as a puppet on a string
of a fine and silvery thread
that prevents it indulging in a new life
holding it while it rests
encouraging it to reflect and strengthen
upon all that is past
so it can catch a dream and let it come true
