Thanks For Dreaming with Me



Photo of our family plot on Denman Island, which was sold in 2021 to another family. This is the view I was looking at while writing this poem.


Thanks for Dreaming with Me


Abundant are the sun and air

Endless is the sea

Warmth and breath, cool and fresh


Thanks for dreaming with me


Diamond shaped the calls of birds

Supported by the trees

Wind through branches tickles our ears


It’s a dream, love, can you see?


Soft and gentle, flowers and grass

Soothing blankets of green

Natural medicine of the soul


We dream on, happily


Empty are the arms that hold us

Here we are full and free

Brought to life by light and breath


Thanks for dreaming with me
