The Isle of Dreams


ever so blessed and true
you shine
like a lonely star
through
the place of suffering
under
the migrant moon
transforming
the ugly experiences of life
(in the
dreamscape of time)
into
things of beauty
and wonder

behold the glimmer of hope
in the new dawn
this glorious moment

you dismantle
the invisible
barriers to success
with a good dose
of love
and laughter
and a cupful
of inspiration
at the peak of promise

you fly like the lost boy
across the valley of the soul
finding solace
in the isle of dreams
narrowing the parameters
of social rejection
as change
morphs into flesh
in the first light of dawn
