***[I dreamed about the world]

Poem By Doris Kareva

I dreamed about the world.
That wild one,
it attempted to surround me, and to match
the shores of my imagination.
No,
I whispered, I'm in search of something else —
the unexpected,
endless as the universe —
a new,
refreshing, melted way of being.

Oh world, be bigger, please!
I asked.

And so it was;
the answer that was given
crushed me;
I was blinded by the light
and an explosion from the bottom of the world
broke up each layer of my hopes,
the hot transformed me
out of recognition.

Alone to soul and trembling, naked,
I woke up —
the stars were falling.

Reached out my hand, afraid and passionate.
And burst to laughter,
twigging to the dream
I had about the world —
the dream of love;
the dream.

She was the fruit of the strange mysterious marriage of a
ballerina and a philosopher; of a fleeting loving embrace of
beauty and truth, a transient chime of polarities amidst
fainting worlds.

Desert dogs run through my dreams,
light, fast, and silent,
just like the wind of God;
beautiful and regal, night after night

A seaside house
always feels like it is a ship,
just landed.
