Dreamers--By Lynn White, Wales, UK


The sun is standing still for them
Standing still for the streams of dreamers.
Dreamers streaming down the roads to somewhere else.
From somewhere that has become nowhere.
Dreaming of escape.
Dreaming of a future, any future.
Dreaming of the life they once had.
Dreaming of normality, whatever that means.
Dreaming of returning
when the sun comes up again, if ever it does.

  2. This lovely poem made me think of the many boat people who make it to our shores as they dream of a better future. Regards // paul

  3. Lovely poem, Lynn. I must confess, I am one of those "dreamers." Continued blessings to you!
