I write what I feel…

Dream Catcher

Dreams…

Disappearing like quick-silver

Just out of reach

Sleeping, waking, always escaping

As quick as a wink, before you can blink

Fluid, flowing into the ether

Nothing to hold, were I so bold as to try

Just an impression, an inkling, a notion

But oh for a potion to clasp it, to grasp it

Before it dissolves in the mists of time

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    • Thanks, Bulldog. I still haven’t worked out their star system. I think people give stars, but the count is for the number of people and not the number of stars! In any case it is very confusticating.

  4. Super. Just one suggestion: first line, ‘A dream’ to match the singular which follows.
