~ Warp and Weft ~

I have spent a lifetime in a moment,

Crafting mystic, silver dreams

Of justice, love and truth.

But became caught

In the spiraled web of what

I wanted.

Awakened, ripped from thoughts

Of silken wishes and whispered hopes,

I floated, tethered only

By a satin strand

Of imagination, all illusion.


The loom’s depth was deceiving;

The seams unraveled slowly but surely.

Unaware of the gossamer nature

Of the bindings, I ached to create

Something real from spun air.

Love, taunted.

Yet, still I dream of courage,

To weave flickering lines of light

Against the shadows of stolen desire.

I mark the time, as if this soul’s tapestry

Could turn the silvered fire to gold.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
