Poem of the Month ~ May 2009

What do your dreams try to remind you of that you’ve forgotten?

What happens when you take to heart that your dreams remember you?

And what if you did re-awaken to that deep, true dream –

the one that is always there – waiting for you?

May Day, May Day!

–Krayna

What We Want

What we want

is never simple

We move among the things

we thought we wanted:

a face, a room, an open book

and these things bear our names –

now they want us.

But what we want appears

in dreams, wearing disguises.

We fall past,

holding out our arms

and in the morning

our arms ache.

We don’t remember the dream,

but the dream remembers us.

It is there all day

as an animal is there

under the table,

as the stars are there

even in full sun.
