Stardust Dreams

The stars like dust are in my eyes
While lying here and wondering.
Space, time, and worlds away,
Through halls of thought I'm wandering.

Places found and sights abound
And visions fill my head,
Of people, friends and memories
That others thought were dead.

The doors of past and future
Are waiting there for me,
To pass beyond and look upon
Worlds that yet may be.

Or near and distant yesterdays
Awaiting my recall.
Everything I've ever known,
Just branches off the hall.

The stars like dust are in my eyes,
And magic in my hand.
But visions sad or beautiful,
By morning turn to sand.

R.V.B.

Many years ago, I woke up one morning with this running through my head. As the dream shattered and began to fade, I tried to gather the shards... I'm still not sure that I found all of the pieces and put them together properly... down.gif

Very insightful poem. I believe many times in my life I have felt this way. I still have pieces of (as you say so beautifully) shard scattered about, and I believe that there will be some pieces still left behind when I am gone, buried in time.

Who can tell? Which Muse will choose to visit next?

I seem to have an artistic bent which expresses itself many different ways, and I can seldom identify what specific event triggers a particular burst of creativity. Did it come from something I read or heard? Is it the result of my sleeping mind trying to create something intelligible from random bits and pieces? I usually can't be sure.

Music is one area where I've been trying to figure it out. Sometimes I'll catch a particular musical phrase, or even just a couple of notes, that will set me off down my own path. Sometimes I'll just be noodling along on my keyboard, not paying any particular attention, to suddenly notice that I've been playing some hitherto unknown piece that sounds like a complete work. It's as if someone else is actually playing through me. Or perhaps it's just my creative unconscious.

That half asleep, half awake time in the early morning is particularly prone to producing poetry, stories, inventions or new concepts. I am intimately familiar with the feeling Coleridge must have had... Kubla Kahn Oh, and I sometimes seem to be at my most creative when I've been very ill... Perhaps coming face-to-face with one's own mortality can have a major inspirational effect...

OK, enough of that! I've been feeling weird all evening...

Robyn!

Weird is not always something to be avoided!

There's one definition . . .
which . . .
if it flows over your shoulders . . .
is to be treasured . . .
even encouraged.

It's the one that drives new directions . . .
in creativity . . .
in invention . . .
in maintaining one's uniqueness.

Your poetry strikes a chord, Robyn.
It's a keeper.

Many artists find their Muses . . .
perched most visibly . . .
in that hazy yet intense little strip of borderland . . .
between dream-in-progress . . .
and eyes-wide-open.

Wow, I wish I knew the English language like you. Growing up in a bilingual house gives you a lot of words. But a very week command of them. At school I have a D in two classes... English and French... Who would have guessed.

Le cela étant dit, Je vous envie.

While lying here and wondering.
Space, time, and worlds away,
Through halls of thought I'm wandering.

Places found and sights abound
And visions fill my head,
Of people, friends and memories
That others thought were dead.

The doors of past and future
Are waiting there for me,
To pass beyond and look upon
Worlds that yet may be.

Or near and distant yesterdays
Awaiting my recall.
Everything I've ever known,
Just branches off the hall.

And magic in my hand.
But visions sad or beautiful,
By morning turn to sand.

Thank you, Linnena. blush.gif If you haven't seen it yet you might also want to check out my other poem posted here,"One Last Purr", though I'll warn you, it's been known to bring tears to the eyes of some people I'd have never guessed it would effect. wink3.gif
