Crystal Dreams

Crystal Dreams

 This place you saw once before in a dream

A place where the silence restores the mind

A symphony of quietude

Billowing with white light movements

How they glide softly without a sound

Lighter than clouds uncoiling on a kind breeze

Before they fall slowly, so slowly

Rippling streams, crystal clear

Clearer than the translucent sky

Winding, wandering

A walk on a shimmering morning

A world of frost, of ice, of snow

Of sheaves of glass and endless mirrors

An illusory place beyond your reach

But you as you watch

The pictures of your dream shatter

Are consumed

As the world sheds its winter sleep

And only the pale, frosty moon prevails

Were they ever real?

Or only shadows?

Like the silent introspection

That holds you through the night

Some questions are better left unanswered

Just dreams that decorate slumber

Diamonds scattered all around

Revealed by the vanishing snow
