Dreaming gifts

Body relaxed as sleep overcomes
The weariness of another day
Leaving the soul rushing
Flowing pipes of
Empty sink mind water
Swirls down into
The drain
Trapped like bits of food
Examined closely
Rinsed clean like plates
Wet Cat food on the floor
The Scavenger dogs eat.
Dreams move through daily chores
Surreal yet a part of each
The minute details
I filter through
Trash unnecessary thoughts
Into the can so very full,
Looking deeper for the present
Of the presence of
Good deeds wrapped
Like golden gifts
Treasured and given
Like stars and light to change course
Reign in the dreams
With ribbons and bows,
Saving the wrappings so beautiful
Peeling off the tape that binds
Touched with lint and cat hair
How sleep transcends life
Yet still is part
Awake rubbing face as fur sticks to my hand
Eyes peer at me wondering
She licks her paw silently
As I sit and wonder
If it was really a dream
After all.

Thoughts on dishes,golden gifts wrapped pretty, life and cats that seem to get into everything..including dreams…cat hair in mouth not a good gift….crazy strange dreams yes.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.

  1. “In reverie they emulate the noble mood
    Of giant sphinxes stretched in depths of solitude
    Who seem to slumber in a never-ending dream;”
    – Charles Baudelaire, Cats

    Lovely dreamy, cat poem, your gift to the world, my friend. ❤
