“I wake to sleep and take my waking slow.  
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.  
I learn by going where I have to go.” – Theodore Roethke

wake!

“Morning dew upon the grass, glistening in the sun.
Yesterday’s gone, tomorrow may come but this day has begun.”
~ Shadows Over February, Calvin W. Allison

“When I awake thinking of dreams I slept on, I often wonder if the dreams ever wake up thinking of me?” ~ Anthony Liccione

I wake to sleep…

“I wake to sleep and take my waking slow. I feel my fate in what I cannot fear. I learn by going where I have to go.”  ~ Theodore Roethke, “The Waking” from Collected Poems of Theodore Roethke

lost in paradise…

next to you...

next to you…

..Then I touch you very lightly,
Run my fingers down your spine,
And your body gently waking
Turns till eyes gaze into mine

And in that very moment,
As your mouth seeks to entice,
When I wake up every morning,
I am lost in paradise.

Wake..

Tatiana Mikhina

“there is the rocking of hips,
a gentle pressing of lips,
my hands splayed on your chest,
fingers along the curve of my breast,
because when I am not wide awake,
it is my dreams that you do make.”

Hold fast to dreams…

 

“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.”

– Langston Hughes
