Dreaming Eyes

Listen to dark winds caress
the leafless tree that stands
in moonlight glowing,
capturing words of wisdom
on cold gnarled branches
a thousand dreams old.
Open wide your dreaming eyes
as thought creates itself
here, there, and everywhere
wandering without boundaries
in the company of
its own unmoving presence. ~ ms

About Mary Strong-Spaid

You can find me any time wandering around in my own mind gathering thoughts.

    excellent Mary


  2. Wow. I wrote a poem many years ago with the same feelings behind it. But it was nothing, nothing close to the gift of words you have put on the page.


    • I just read your post “The Reflective Mirror.”
      The same thought appears in different ways and words.


      • That just shows how connected we all are. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve just finished writing a post and then read another with a very similar topic and message. I truly believe these messages need to get out and so, many of us are receiving them to deliver. The same message delivered just a little differently so that everyone in their own way can hear them. Thank you for what you do.
