Dream Language -------------------------------------------
There's a poem on every blank page
another between the words of others.
They're hidden in the soil
in the mind,
in the eyes of children.
You only have to decode the dream language
that's foreign to everyone.
i agree. there are poems everywhere. i like that you compare it to a dream language when you find the poem. something unique in a "language" that no one else will speak. we can all look at a red rose, and when we write a poem about it, each one'll be different. but there is a universal language, too, i think, inside the collective unconscious (if you know anything about Carl Jung). nice poem! makes me want to go find some poems to "dream out" of where they are!
everything can inspire us - we just have to look around and search deep within ourselves. nice positive message. I think I need to do that more often. I barely write poems lately. but anyway this is a really good poem.
I really like this, but something makes me uncomfortable with the last line. Can't put my finger right on the why, but I like the sound of this better: words that are foreign to everyone. Maybe it's just the repeated w sounds in words and one. Very inspirational. Dave
I could probably prove and say on several things but i think there is no need. Dream Language...perhaps in my mind is a language known to all without being spoken. Some might not understand but this language is known as silence. silence in general terms and is used everyday, through happiness and pain. Foreign to many for they cannot read the minds of others*smiles*. Expression of poetic terms of this Dream Language you speak of...it is the artistic mind and charisma of a poet that speaks to us all.
