COULD IT BE A DREAM  




 
 
  
  


COULD IT BE  



A DREAM

The bus carried riders to a picnic area
Men and women-children and teens were the passengers

Looking around at the people they were all dressed the same
Males were wearing long pants dark in color
with long sleeve shirts with a small black hat

The females had on dark long dresses down to their ankles
Their hair bound in nets at the back of their head
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The bus stopped and the people rushed off
running through the gate of a park where there were trees and tables

I stood looking around I didn't remember getting on the bus
or why or who I was with

The people broke into cliques and were laughing and having
a wonderful time
I stood by myself having no one to talk to

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I looked up in a tree and there was two solid white panthers
I stood still afraid to move

In their mouth they each had a large hunk of ice
It was melting and running down their chins
The people below the tree were unaware that they were in danger

For some strange reason the fear left me and I felt an euphoria
wash over me and such wonderful joy filled my being

I looked at the people
Gone were the drab clothing
It was replaced with dazzling white garments

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A man walked from a house across the way
He too was dressed in a splendid garment
He smiled at me like he knew me and held out his arms to me
We walked and talked in the park of many things

My mind understanding each thing that we talked of
Many questions were answered and secrets were revealed

An alarm was heard  -  quickly my eyes flew open
Sunlight streamed into my room  -  it was a dream
A new day had begun
