A Blanket of Dreams






i find myself wanting

to wrap myself in the 
blanket of dreams
I have spun out for myself
during the long afternoons
spent alone

this blanket

its a plane of existence
with which
I can feel successful

if I could trade my dreams in for poems

perhaps

the time will have been 
well-spent

and if not,

at least i will have entertained myself well

a blanket of dreams 
can be woven by
the most  inarticulate craftsman
in colors floating
within the periphery
of eye

an undulation subtle
of the air surrounding me
at any given time

a catching of a thought
prismatic
as it explodes forth
in colors

the love of the possible
rather
than the need for the practical

a juggling act
as warp and weft combine
weaving this blanket of dreams
