Reverie/the sunday whirl #375 -- poets united poets pantry








Reverie
The morning pink
Above the horizon
The mountains a misty blue
All is quiet and still

No breeze blows
It is as if the world
Is holding her breath
Lost in her dreams

The child sings a song of her own
Attentive to the soft kitten
Petting her gently
Mother stirs the eggs

Prepares breakfast
In her mind
She dreams
Of the long drive home


The past rolls before her
Like a movie
The child tugs on her skirt
She returns to the kitchen

As though for the first time
To find her hands have
Completed the task
She puts breakfast on the table

You have captured exactly how reverie takes us away, and how we are brought back to the present to find we have been working automatically. Love that "long road home" line.

I sometimes think that all is brighter when a reverie...
Maybe it was screams and runny noses less that cuteness of kittenw

This reverie seems so very real. I feel as if I could step right into your poem!

Everyday experiences can be the most beautiful.

Ah yes, we come back to find we have been on auto pilot
