Lake Of Dreams

By Richard Milton Grahn

I poured my dreams into a lake
And watched them slowly dissipate
Those tender drops dissolved in waves
Rolling through the thoughts I’ve saved

Drenched in sunlight, dancing there
Those dreams evolved into a mist
Lifting up, it kissed the sky
Spinning rainbows in my eyes

Butterflies in brilliant light
What a sight as dreams take flight
Whatever comes, whatever goes
The ripples in the lake still flow

New thoughts reach down, deep down inside
As wonder wafts up from the waves
The lake returns so many dreams
It seems her visions long to be

I let the dreams flow wild and free
The lake has now become a sea
I’m all absorbed in its salty spray
Today my cares are washed away
