Dreams are.

Dreams are

the mind cleaning house,

dragging clutter to the curb,

clearing the shelves

of a new day.


Dreams are

desires unacknowledged,

snagged as we troll the

dark depths of

the unconscious.


Dreams are

losses ungrieved,

memories buried deep that

revisit when we cannot

fend them off.


Dreams are

glossy soap bubbles,

all surface, rainbow, and air.


then gone.




We rise out of sleep,

swimmers breaking

the surface

and look to the brief shimmer

of dreams half-remembered

for portent, warning,



And then we forget,

turning toward more

potent dreams.


The dreams we dream
