Dreams Are All I Ever Find

Poem By Juan Olivarez

Dreams are all I ever find,
In the deep recesses of my mind,
Like a country wall covered with vines.

There's nothing to wrap my arms around,
When ice covers the frozen ground,
But dreams are all I've ever found.

Were you a dream I had one night,
That disappeared with the morning light,
And slowly faded from my sight.

Because to dreams of you I'm bound,
Colorless dreams devoid of sound,
Dreams are all I've ever found.

forms shrouded in the mist... perhaps we are dreams!
I do like the mysterious feeling flowing thru this one.
I can relate to this. I like the way you presented the message, smooth and flowing like a dream, easy to take in the meaning and relish the scene. The last line repeated from the first line is a also a great style, I like that.
Beautiful rhythm and rhyme......very nicely done Juan!

Gossamer Wings

I had a dream, that I could fly,
On gossamer wings, in the clear blue skies.
Floating above the Earth below,
Going where the air currents chose to go.

Return To Padre

It was a million years ago,
We walked on the beach at Padre.
Scattering the sand crabs as we went,
And dodging the blue jellyfish,

Your Voice

I hear your voice,
Of the day or night.


Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

What Are We?

After all is said and done,
What are we?
Are we gold or silver,
Or a sparkling diamond in the rough?

Death Passes By

A vast endless sea of sand beyond
The blue grey hills, bathed in the sun
Creosote bushes dot the line
Of a bleak horizon, where heat waves shine
