In My Dreams (inspired by Alberto Blanco)


September 15, 2011 by WITS Editor

Abstract  lights

In my dreams

the sun bites the moon

the ocean whispers to the wind

the sky cheats on the wind

the rocks lie to the grass

the cactus falls in love with a hat

the trees sleep in their houses

the sunflowers smile

the whole earth prays

by Mercy, 14


One thought on “In My Dreams (inspired by Alberto Blanco)

    My wife and I love this poem. We had it on the wall in our previous apartment, and put it on display again after we just moved house.
    Only one thought, without the “In my dreams” the poem would be even stronger. Mercy, you need no excuse!
