Waking Dreams Poem by Soran M. H

Waking Dreams

Rating: 5.0

On the bed
a black river
like a wounded snake
Passing inside neuron
before reaching
A centre of decision
dam stopping it
parting it from the dream
to be a giant wave
In the heart of ocean

Outside the bed
inside the room
the size of the head is shrinking
the river changed to a stream
flowing up
Inside the arteries
at last to reach those harbors
Ships have anchored there
before starting their long journey
But suddenly
the door of the room opens
A stream floats into the street
in the angry dog days of summer
became a mirage

On a wide, long way
A drop of water
turning fast such as a small ball bearing
searching for a skull
but has no chance
to reach the source:
that always is gushing
all night the moon inside it
Precisely stares at herself..

Don't Worry about forgetting your manners. you are respecting poems so much that is why you are very academically focusing on the poem not any thing out side them, and as you know the quality is much important than quantities, I worked on some of my poems for weeks to finalize them, always I try to write an open text with various meanings and understanding...Cheers
