Dream Chaser


I chase dreams
stolen dreams ... recaptured

in the bliss of this moment

I am a dream within a dream
awakened by a sunrise kiss


This weekend, I went for a lovely nature walk on a sunny day. I just happened to notice a gorgeous cat in a green field chasing after something. I don't know what it was he was chasing, but he was determined and unafraid. And then I saw butterflies chasing after flowers. I was inspired to write a poem on dreams. It seems that we, as in nature, are always chasing after something. And sometimes it is something we already have ... but we just didn't realize it yet or didn't take the time to notice it. We are the dream.

  1. I loved your two photographs and how they inspired your 'chasing dreams' poem. I think you are right...we are always chasing something. Animals and humans alike are always on a quest!

    1. Thank you for noticing the affirmation, Brian. While it's great to be empowered to go after our dreams, it's also nice to appreciate the present moment :)

  22. Came back to re-read and comment fully. I loved the idea of dreams recaptured. It speaks of hope and the future. And the idea of being awakened from a dream within a dream by that sunlit kiss...just blissful.
