Sweet Dream

I reach out
to embrace the earth
of soft cotton
and cushy ground
with little worms hidden.
I close my eyes to see
the round orange sun dancing
beneath my eyes.
My lips part
in a smile
like no other.
I leap up
and run.
My glorious
white train
flowing behind me.
Fresh moist air
pushes its way into
my nose.
Nothing more
perfect than this.
Just when I see my prince
in shining armor
awaiting me on his
white stallion…
I wake up.

I know this sounds petty... but it's great, and nothing can change that. I love poems, and I especially love ones that show real emotion and tenderness. I don't think I'll ever forget this one... if I do, can you slap me?

This is an excellent poem!  I love the vivid imagery and the ending is sort of predictable, but very nice.  I truly appreciate the effort you put into proper punctuation.  Not many poets bother with it, which really annoys me.  So again, excellent work!

i like the abruptness of the ending, and this poem is awesome.  but i also feel like you could really go into the fantasy a bit more and have some fun--like discuss dream like sensations of "cushy" in more deatail...but it has a lovely sort of drowsy dream like quality already--phantasmagorical (my fav word totally applies to this poem).
