Island Of Dreams

Post  RichieO on Wed May 09 2012, 07:04

Island of Dreams

I seek a place of peace
and solitude to regenerate
a tired and weary soul.

Upon a journey into life itself
I shall travel, through a dream
to forsake my passion for life.

Across fields of pastures green,
to a far off distant land
I find within my dreams.

Reaching a forest
I stand and gaze,
and look intently within.
What lays ahead through
this misty wood I do not know.

Tall Pine trees guide me along
a narrow and twisting path.
Through the darkness
of this forest of wood I do
but seek a place of good.

Haunting sounds do come
from all around.
The sound of a Woodpecker
knocking on wood,
does echo hauntingly throughout
this forest of wood.

Once through this forest
I find a valley which is open
and wonderful to be seen,
surrounded by mountains so high.

My journey continues
upon the valley floor
to reach the mountains beyond.
Climb this mountain
which stands in my way.
A strenuous ascent to reach the top,
only to find an Ocean to sail upon.

Does my journey
have to be so intense,
have I not suffered
the pains of ones life.
Oh where is this peace
I seek.
Is it still only hidden
within my dreams of sleep.

I sail the seven seas
To find my Pitcairn island
of freedom and peace.
But not for me is that
island of paradise,
for it's solitude,
I do but seek.

A vision materialise's
Within my dream
an island where I can
rest and reflect upon a
life which hath past.
A peace of solitude
I have found.

My journey now seems
to have come to an end
on island not yet touched
by hands of mankind.
Archangels of beautificaton
surround me now,
for this is my heaven,
my island of dreams.

Thanks Jin, I've a bit lost for words regarding writing my thoughts. Pre-occupied with other things going on. Still hopefully back on track (so to speak). Lol xxxx

Thanks you guys and gals, I love imagining where one can go within our dreams. Hopefully one day we can live it to reality and feel free of all our burdens....!!!!
