Iiwas mesmerized by the image of a robin perched on the rung of an arbor I had built around a bird bath in order to display the flowers I had planted right after the ground allowed me to do so. It was early in the evening right before the sun decided it had enough of the day.

The robin sat motionless staring into the dimming orb of light contemplating nothing more important than itself. Or at least I thought it was doing so.

In my dreams we meet, you and I
beneath a cloudless deep blue sky.
The meadow flowers here abound
and rich green grass lies all around.

our hearts and souls joining as one.

For hours we talk, our souls we bare
as everything we gladly share.
And we express our deep, true love –
but stormy clouds loom up above.

It’s getting dark, it’s hard to see,
I sense you drift away from me.
The air grows cold, what is my fate?
I awake now – sad and desolate.
