Dreams

The dreams we have when we sleep usually are not just things to laugh about. Sometimes life-changing ideas are given us in dreams and it is left to us to comb through the rubble and pick out the needle in the hay stack.

They hover, flying past,
Eagerness spotting their lush bodies,
Seeking who to fulfill,
Searching for a host with a heart large and strong,
Determined beyond bounds,
Daily journeys they make,
Though rejected by many,
Over and over they return, unnoticed, unwelcomed.
Now and then, once in a long while,
The dim illumination in every man shines,
In but one out of a million,
Pooling dreams at his feet,
A dream is selected, nourished, groomed,
A dream soars, enlarges into the dream,
The dream takes root and expands,
The dream flowers, blooms, and yields,
One fruit then the other,
The once thorn-crowded path,
Pebbled, rocky, crooked,
Glows with light incomprehensible,
Sparkles with golden pieces, precious stones;
Immeasurable profit fills the jar, overflows,
The result of a welcomed dream.
Above and around they still hover,
Doning the robes of ideas, Opportunities,
Waiting to be grasped,
Dreams, waiting, calling out,
Wasting away.
