A Dream in Hand


Like dove grey sand
slipping between
an outstretched hand
dreams in a far off land

You cry and you weep
but no one there to hear
so off you go to sleep
where stars are there to keep

A tender dream or two
under the leafy palm
the wind blowing through
while I'm thinking of you

All dreams must end
just as the water recedes
so tomorrow I will send
a story being penned.




But, wait...



Instead, you get the car
and I'll get the night
and maybe we could make
movies of our dreams


Maybe

cocaine jesus - What's the roadblock, mate?

illusion - That may be the frightening part - depending on certain variables, of course.

own the night and grab will o' wisps while cruising at 200 towards that bright, shining light at the end of the tunnel...always a good ending for a movie.

love the sardonic twist at the end. :)

David Lynch made a movie of his dream and called it Eraserhead.
I was one of the lucky ones to see it premier at the first L.A. Film Festival. It was a watershed moment in film history.
Nothing like it had ever been made and nothing has ever since.

blue rogue - You own the ending right there.

finnegan - Never seen the movie. Thanks for that. Very cool. I'll be visiting some starving actor friends in Hollywood next week. I'm very interested in what they have to say.

**silvermOOn** - Thank you for the well wishes. I thought it was about time I put some sort of avatar up, and I'm a big fan of John. You'll have to drop the url for that other blog.

I love John Lennon- mmmmm.
My other blog has been here in blogland since Dec. 2004 so I kept it under that name of "GEL" affectionately derived from Green-Eyed Lady so blog peeps wouldn't think I had left when I began a more serious writing blog. The other one is eclectic. You'll recognize several of the readers from this circle. There is some cross-over.
If you forget the link here, it's linked on my blogroll as "My other "GEL" blog":
