Carpe Diem # 549 Dream.

        Khalil Gibran had for sure dreams too, did he fullfill his dreams ... I don't know, but I think he did. In his "Sand and Foam" we can read several 'verses' about dreams and I love to share a few of them here for your inspiration.

[...] "How can I lose faith in the justice of life, when the dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not more beautiful than the dreams of those who sleep upon the earth?" [...]

[...] "The flowers of spring are winter’s dreams related at the breakfast table of the angels". [...]

[...] "I would not be the least among men with dreams and the desire to fulfill them, rather than the greatest with no dreams and no desires".[...]Quoted from original.

These Haiku  take you to the other world, all full of colorful  and scented flowers. Here is my small effort.                                                    

                                                             Vast green land,lillies
                                                       soft  perfumed, blooming in clusters
                                                                soothing in my dream.

                                                               Red are cherries' clusters
                                                    With bright splendour in moon lit night
                                                            ah! it was a dream.
