Astronomical Journeys

Astronomical Journeys




Each night, I prepare for bed

But I do not sleep

Instead I go on a journey


I go to places that seem parallel to where I am now

It's as if I am out side of myself

Looking at myself


In my sleep, I travel to places where I have never been

Doing things that I have never done

Yet it is my-self that I see


I am involved with people

That I have never met

But it is as if I know them well


I am involved in situations that

I could never conceive

But it is as if I planned them


I see marvelous wonders

That I dare not explain

For my journeys are astronomical!


When finally I return to my bed and awaken from my sleep

I realize that I have had an exhaustive experience

That is as special as it is unique!

oh oh awesome. this seems like a different sort of writing for you. i love this. i wanted it to be longer, but the length you chose is perfect. point made, and a lovely journey it took me on reading this in wonderment. i travelled there with you as the reader. wonderful. now i need to view my "dreams" more like this, than exhausting adventures that fill me with anxiety, not wonderment and beautiful adventure. great writing- i feel your stepping from your box with this. stretching your creative muscles. i know its all personal preference what we write about, and I used to only write about one sort of thing- kinda poe historical slightly macabre stuff- kinda like vincent price and ebenezer scrooge writing by candlelight merged- but now i find myself writing about all sorts of things- comdey, scifi, political, drama, etc.- You warrior p- can write about anything and be really really great at it. i just know. thanks so much for sharing this. it has affected me and how i may view my own dreams
