Dreams take you to such exotic destinations that do not even exist...How great is that!!!

NOMAD

With this capsule tethered to my cot

I flit through realms of space and time
A nomad of a different kind
With no fixed destination
I travel like a king all the time
 
I am my master, My own guide
I always journey through the night
Picturing perfections and feeling all light
Through surreal streets and grand designs
Elated at my break from line
 
 
I decide my own destination
And take the wheels of my own design
I hurry along to take in the signs
To give back to those who’ve joined the line
I am their escape from mundane lives
 
 
 
I regale them with new tales and rhyme.
Their dreams too now I recognize,
I’ve seen them with my own two eyes
The beauty of seeing without experiencing
Holds me captive till the morning light.
 
 
I am a wanderer, a nomad for all time
When reality fades, my dreams bear light.

Those beautiful times when dreams merge with reality.... you've talked of them so lovingly and wistfully. I especially liked:
'To give back to those who’ve joined the line
I am their escape from mundane lives'
That is what you have done with this poem. It gives an added dimension to the entire experience.
