She Dreamed Herself A Rose

One summer evening
the kind where the breeze blows through 
open windows
white sheers dance a hypnotic dance…
she dreamed a dream
moon peeking 
eyes squinting
blue-black sky 
star splattered canvas
lulling her
to the never-never place
tree branch scritch-scritching
the roof
 night time melody
toad symphony
eyes heavy
gently squeezing tight 
shutting out the day 
and dancing curtains
her body still
window sill
as she took root from seed and grew
but unafraid
ever reaching 
toward light
but still known
trusting the light
blossoming full
she became the rose
awakened to morning
dew kisses –
she dreamed herself a rose
and became the beautiful flower
bringing smiles 
and joy
 to all who
 came into her presence
and in her season
she was known
to have grown
from the small
from earth 
into the unknown
all the way
to Heaven.

  1. love that last stanza….dreamed herself a rose and grew to heaven…there is magic in it…but also hope…and i think it comes back to what we dream of ourselves…how we see ourselves makes all the difference…


  2. This is lovely. It's true we can live our dreams :)I love the way this is displayed … it aids reading like you speaking it.Tigerbrite


  3. i like how she became what she dreamed for herself – i think there's power in the pictures we make of ourselves – beautifully put
