She had some dreams

She had some dreams

She had dreams that were star-filled skies

She had dreams that were sleeping baby’s sighs

She had dreams that were raging forest fires

She had dreams that were noisy bazaars with impatient buyers

 

She had some dreams

She had dreams that were an eerily quiet  graveyard

She had dreams that were sun filled Van Gogh Postcards

She had dreams that wept a martyred widows tears

She had dreams that were a stranded mountaineers fears

 

She had some dreams

She had dreams that frolicked in the happy April sun

She had dreams that were hollowed eyes of a mother who’s lost her son

She had dreams that were  the promise of  flower laden fruit trees

She had dreams that were a multitude of angry killer bees

 

She had some dreams

She had dreams that were a pricky three day old stubble

She had dreams that were a fragile iridescent bubble

She had dreams that glided, dreams that  danced

She had dreams that were happy, dreams that were sad

 

She had some dreams of dreams that she had once had

 

I am participating in Napowrimo -2017. The challenge for the eighth day was to write a poem that relies on repetition. I was mesmerized by the beauty of Joy Harjo’s “She Had Some Horses” and used it as an inspiration to write my poem for the day. I hope you enjoy it!

    Oh so utterly lovely Sapney, you carried me with her dreams, some shattering, some touching, some downers, some frilly and frothy, so so nice. You are a budding poetess whose repertoire is widening every new day. Way to go!
