Shakespeare Dreams

Sanctimonious devastation found in a sleeping nymph’s dreams.

The sweet incarnation tosses and turns while wrapping herself in the blanket of night.

There is Much Ado About Nothing in the world of waking visions,
so the beauty dwells among the comedies of unconscious fantasy.

Caught inside a Shakespeare wonderland she dances with angels,
leaving tragedy at the door.
She is carried high above the Tempest to an Eden of lush contentment.

It would be a Midsummer Night’s Dream if
Summer hadn’t fallen into oranges and browns.

But deep in slumber she dwells in warmth and innocence;
her dreams sweetened with sugarplum sonatas
while fairies whisper,
“You can have life As You Like It.”
