Beyond my dreams

Sun, warm upon my skin as I woke from sleep I felt zing, a tingle climbing from my feet seeping up through me to my mouth , a taste so sweet.

Slowly I became aware of my surroundings, beautiful, strange, but how did I get here. It seemed I was in a fairy dell with lacy ivy dressed with silver dew and an enchanted smell.

I stood amid a ruined building that unto a great forest was yielding.The light was streaming in through open doors and windows, portals warming up the grassy floors.

These are not my clothes. I have never had dressed like this , own this dress? I wish!

my dress? I wish!

I wish! Looking up I see the sun and feel as though my life has just begun. Forget the past and all that is real. This my new life this is how I want to feel. I never want to return to the rat run that was my life an invalid, mother and wife.

This is where I ought to be, perfect, peaceful, beautiful me.No I would rather stay here the it is easier than the other place OH! this is so beautiful , gentle happy I feel no fear. It is simple it is clear, I am safe and warm I shall stay here.

As I walk the sweetest scent of flowers dance around my nose, I hear running water outside where a gentle stream flows. I stoop to pick the pretty flowers suddenly I feel sad I know this place is not real but this is the best time I have ever had.

So please don’t wake me , leave me where I am. I’ll come back when I have to.

      No you are right it is always disappointing when you awake to the hard cold world of what we see as reality. I often wander if the good dream is real and this life we live is the fantasy?? xx
