Imagination Poem by Valerie Dohren


Rating: 4.9

O step into a wondrous world
Where visions beautiful are hurled
As through imagination`s play
All thoughts then drift so far away
As sweet illusions to portray

Behind reality`s dark face
Is veiled a bright empyreal place
Where fantasies are captured there
And dreams are evermore laid bare
Magnificent beyond compare

Whilst portraits flicker in the mind
With sounds sublime there too entwined
In still`ed contemplation bound
The dancing chimera resound
Through every thought and all around

So, fanciful, the mind ascends
Through maze-like paths it ever wends
To wander into realms extant
That captivate and so enchant
Imagination`s wish to grant

O step into this glorious world
Where there all dreams be yet unfurled
Then dance with joy and sweet delight
To witness soft in mystic flight
Illusions beauteous to your sight

'Behind reality`s dark face Is veiled a bright empyreal place Where fantasies are captured'...mmm, beautifully written. Imagine that; reality and wish, side by side.

Seems to be more than one beautiful meaning flowing sweetly through this wonderful poem. A dream, a hope, a spirit, ... a destination.

Thanks Val you have described our crazy minds to a tee, for if if weren't for the imaginations of poets like you, our world would most certainly be a dull place............

I am sure you are now in a euphoric land of imagination! Where is that bright empyreal place veiled? You leave us to drift in wishful longing for such a place! !

Nice to read imagination and dreams without them we have nothing, your second verse fits my fantasy of dancing which I do 3 times a week...dreams laid bare with music...thanks for this...regards
