I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
that come -
on the grayest of winter days.
When the north winds blow
and I close my eyes,
laying back -
as music plays.
It takes me away,
to the place I want to be,
where green fields,
like emeralds shine
and colorful flowers bloom.
Where the skies are always sapphire blue
and the golden sun shines brightly.
White cotton clouds floating by,
where there are country roads,
lined with tall pines
and the wind whistles through,
singing a happy tune.
At the end of the road,
sheep would graze
and life’s so mellow and slow -
never a worry or doubt.
can take me there,
where there is color everywhere
and the winter snows don’t dance about.
along quiet rivers,
flowing softly along,
with weeping willows
and tall oak trees,
along the banks -
the beauty of nature all around.
Away from the gray and dreary,
all the ice and frozen snow,
far away in special dreams,
down country lanes,
along lakes full of ducks -
wildflowers and meadows,
so much to make me smile.
take me to the days,
when we were two.
The icy cold days,
did not matter,
as long as my hand was in yours.
as snowflakes danced around
and our footsteps side by side –
walking through a winter wonderland.
taking me away,
to a place I wish to be,
just me drifting along,
leaving the winter far behind -
in my very special dreams.

Rasma, I love your special dreams. I was riding right there with you, especially along the weeping willow lined road.
Your muse is taking advantage of your emotions and putting out some very beautiful work, my friend.
