home

have you ever hoarded
your dreams? fearful that
if you shared them someone
might steal them? even worse
we sometimes fear we’re
not worthy of our own dreams
so we quitclaim them
to others saying here take
my magic i won’t be
needing it and i’ll even
throw in the wand

we fill our days writing to
do lists and thinking up goals
but dreams don’t like to be
analyzed they’re not comfortable
on the couch they prefer to
take up residence in the heart
where they can use ancient keys
to unlock doors spilling
liquid light of recognition into
our sighs of relief when we
realize we’re home

~Marilyn Maciel

(More on where this came from later – and how this serendipitous find unlocked doors and spilled liquid light of recognition into my own huge, welcome sigh of relief.)

Glad to be home,
Rhéa
