remembered a dream i had last night by pd lyons


 

someone i didn’t know had come to the front door

 told me you were looking for me

on horses we used to own

i couldn’t believe my luck

went to meet you

took those trails we used to take

certain that’s the way you’d come

raced the river

edged the narrow ridge

ducked low hung branches

even found

the old red barn

the wild turkey barn

the shelter from the rain barn

surprised  after all these years-

it hadn’t changed at all

    Thanks for sharing the latest. I’m having a wonderful time with my Western Lit II students and their occasional attempts at poetry. Best to all and God bless. e/s

    I can never read this too many times. This poem makes me happy.

    Well, sometimes it makes me cry. That’s a versatile, well-written poem.

    Thank you.
