“Sojourn in Dreams”
Under the shadow of a birch tree
by the lakeside on a lazy afternoon
with a book in hand , a thought in mind
Alone I sat, a solitary swallow in the sun….
High above the whites abound, the blues in their wake
The golden scattered all around
With a smile on my lips , I know
the autumn is here to start anew…..
I close my eyes to see with my heart ,
The afternoon breeze whispering in my ears
A few words of wisdom.
The silence of the woods, the stillness of the waters,
sparks in me an understanding so serene, so pure….
Alas, its time already
The sun is fading away
I stand up , retracing my steps
back to my world, with a promise
of being back tomorrow, and again …..
