Dreams of a Mystic Dreamer

A mystic dreamer
I write poetry and pray
meditating on God's word.

I write poetry in my dreams,
lines and stanzas
that disappear from my waking mind.

I dream dreams of salvation,
Christ returning
in the clouds of glory.

I am the mystic
struggling
with the fears generated
by childhood traumas;
fears that my dreams
sort out
or put aside
for another night.

Dreams there are
that remain firm and bright
with the passing years.

Other dreams fade
with the coming
the morning light
carried away
by the winds of dawn.

Dreams console,
echo
the fight between
faith and doubt.

I whisper a prayer
of protection before my
eyelids close in sleep.
