In Dreams

In dreams I feel your touch.
The sound of my sigh
Brings a gentle smile to your eyes
Your breath is warm
But as I turn to you
The dream evanesces
Your touch is gone
And you disappear.

I fold in on myself once again,
Alone with my thoughts.
What is this fantasy -
What are these dreams but paintings
Of impossible landscapes.
Escher and Magritte shaking hands,
Laughing about their little joke on me ---
Or perhaps pointillism with little substance,
Fleeting memories of what can not be.

My tomorrow embraces a world
You have never traveled to.
Visas are readily granted
But must be requested
From a position of freedom.

I get a little closer every day.
My house is slowly being built,
I am already choosing furniture,
Planning bamboo groves
That will sigh and sway and sing with the wind
Tall, slender, and graceful palms to give perspective to my garden,
Fragrant jasmine to pleasure the senses
And bougainvilleas – not only for their lush and vibrant splendor
But also for their pitiless thorns
(As I have felt serrations in my defenses).
I have not yet taken up permanent residence
In my world of tomorrow,
So it is still easy to think of you
But I booked a one-way passage there
Long before I was born
And that is my path…
I can not waver from it.
It has never been yours.
And so I dream –
Fleeting memories of what can not be.
