Sanctuary Of Dreams - Poem by Rachel Mary Jane Arnold

Somewhere or other, as you are drifting into sleep,
A place beyond your wildest dreams is being born.
Now let me describe to you this enchanting world.
Come to a winding path and climb the mystical stairs,
To enter the Crystal Castle that sits upon a cloud.
Unicorns and fairies will appear before you,
Angels sing and play a heavenly melody on their harps.
Rainbow rivers run through the purple mountains,
You will be wearing a heavenly velvety robe.

Oh, let me take you to the Sanctuary of Dreams,
For it cannot be entered while you are still awake.

Dare to enter this fantasy land and explore your dreams,
Ride the winged horses and dance amongst the stars,
Escape fully from your troubles and dream like me.
Across the bridge and forest of the Crystal Castle,
Mermaids sing and dance with dolphins in a sea of gold.
So sleep, little one, to enter the Sanctuary of Dreams.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem as an acrostic and in the form of a children's bedtime story because it helped to bring this dreamy theme to life the way that I had it in my head. I originally wanted to call the poem 'Circus of Dreams' because I have had that dreamy title in my head for years (after coming across 'Circus of the Moon', I coined 'Circus of Dreams', which I've never heard of before) . However, I found that 'Sanctuary' was a better word for a poem title, very peaceful, and also because it enabled me to use fictional characters that you wouldn't find in a circus, i.e. mermaids, dolphins, fairies.
