Retourne Poem – Writers Dream

Writers live breathe dream about words
Words color the world, rich texture
Fills in lonely nights with ideas
Those that dream words never let go

Words color the world, rich texture
Images with precious ideas
Fills the mind with a new story
Keeps fingers tapping the keyboard

Fills in lonely nights with ideas
Written in the mind forever
Or jotted down in a wild dream
Never to escape a nights sleep

Those that dream words never let go
Now to go forward with those dreams
Create your story beauty reins
With all those words you dreamed about
