mind at play

 

 
your dreams tell you a story
sometimes modern, sometimes old
you cannot force
these tales of course
they simply must unfold
.
the plots may be disjointed
or curvaceous arcs, so smooth
a ragged bark
formed in the dark
or peaceful psalms to soothe
.
they'll inch into the future
hearken back into the past
and when you wake
you'll feel the quake
of what you had seen last
.
their colors are unworldly
things are never as they seem
perchance, i'll sleep
and slumber, deep
all wrapped up in a dream

It is as smooth as a pleasant dream. I especially liked the word "perchance", a word usually only found in older forms of poetry, it makes this poem a little gem.
