“Dream Garden” (Poetry)

“Dream Garden” is a poem that was co-opted from some lines of verse that I wrote in a spiral notebook back in 2004. It was put into its current form in 2006. It’s short, but I appreciated the imagery, so I decided to make it part of my poetry collection.

In my waking hours
I like staring at my ceiling
Full of overwhelming feelings
Yeah, I just want to stay
And let my mind explore
These mental scenes a bit more
In my Dream Garden

The clouds…
The fragrant flowers…
The long empty hours…
Of my Dream Garden

Trapped in my reveries
Selected by society
To perform a dull vocation
Can’t use my sweet 
Ability for creation
But ideas meet saturation
In my dream garden
