Coat of Dreams

.

I wear a coat of my dreams,
The pockets filled with rocks,
Heavy wool sodden with my tears.
I sweat, struggling in the humid heat.
.
Should I cast away my dreaming coat
And reveal my aged nakedness,
My flesh disfigured by passing time,
Nude sorrow bleeding without skin?
.
I wear a coat of dreams,
The pockets filled with rocks,
Heavy wool sodden with my tears.
I sweat, struggling in the humid heat.
.
Shall I keep my precious coat,
Dreams more of value than life,
And wade beneath the cooling water,
My sweat, my tears, my self and dreams dissolved?
.
I wear a coat of my dreams,
The pockets filled with rocks,
Heavy wool sodden with my tears.
I sweat, struggling in the humid heat.

    How inspiring you and Willow are to me. I am blessed by both of your wisdom and presence everyday. Please heave out the rocks. For the sake of my generation and my children after me. You are both appreciated more than you know.

    • ‘Tis quite a nice coat. Maybe I shall just take the rocks out of the pockets, and put it in storage until the weather is more appropriate……. though I have waited quite a long while … …. and it still fits …… and all of my other clothing is patched together from the dreams of some one else 😦

          • Why does everything require such a fuss? Every time I toss out a few rocks, the someone who wants me to be clothed in their dreams, sneaks a few more heavy rocks back in. it is wanted that I get so tired and bogged down that I discard the entire coat and re clothe myself in that patched together mess of their ideas of how I should be. I feel a little anger slipping in …. I do better when I have a bit of mad to help. New Writers Affirmation: I have been blessed with a gift. No cost is too great. I must write. No cost is too great. I must write. I must write.
