Stream of Dreams

With heavy eyes drifting away
floating on the stream of dreams
where bright sunshine warms her wrinkled face
and life is buoyant and carefree
No worries from the past as the present unfolds,
a glimpse through bright eyes of youth
behind eyes of old

  1. Linda, the idea that we are always young in our dreams is an encouraging one. The falling off to sleep floats us on a stream of dreams. Wonderful quadrille ❤

  2. Your “stream of dreams” is as verdant as a field of moist four leaf clovers, as dreamy as Nardia, a bite of Bardo. Thank the gods, muses and luck that our youth remains within, eager, happy to make a guest appearance when summoned.

  3. I can personally vouch for the fact that the “bright eyes of youth” still see behind the eyes of the old! My memories are as bright as if they were yesterday. Loved your poem.

  4. Beautiful.. Love the poem and painting…. a glimpse through bright eyes of youth
    behind eyes of old

    A poem of being at peace with one’s self at this stage of life! Well done.

  5. I felt like you wrote about me, Linda–but smiled when I thought of that warm sunshine which is surely the root cause of my wrinkled face. Aging finds its joy in thinking of good memories and creating new ones. I hope you are doing well.

    a glimpse through bright eyes
    of youth behind eyes of old

    Love the acknowledgment, Linda, of blessings of youth accorded which some may have to strive for without much success.

  7. Lovely, Linda!

    No worries from the past as the present unfolds,

    You know, I was looking for wise quote about happiness today, and more than a few people suggested that being unable to remember the past is necessary to be happy!

  8. Oh the visual evoked are lovely indeed. “…a glimpse through bright eyes of youth
    behind eyes of old” for such beauty in life or happiness in its memory is ageless..

  9. Both the image and your Quadrille is stunning! ❤️

    Makes me wonder what different choices we would make if ever the young dreamed out of wrinkled eyes.
