Midnight Butterfly

by Valley Reed

 

Rise into infinity,

Come away with me,

Come away with me.

 

Midnight Butterfly 

wild and free,

show me possibilities.

 

Giant wings alight my crown.

My head in flight,

and my feet on the ground.

 

Enter the infinite,

beyond inhibitions.

No prerequisite

for dream exhibitions.

 

Free to roam

and wander around,

explore the mundane,

reveal the profound.

 

Dimensions of dreaming,

flooding my mind.

depths of meaning,

wise and kind.

 

Dream memories land

on fluttery wings. 

Beyond understanding 

the order of things.

 

Midnight butterfly flight

visit my dreams, 

guide me tonight…

 

Wisdom wings

of the soul kind,

open my mind.

 

Travel far 

on intentions set, 

Discovering where

you haven’t been yet.

 

Creative winds 

are expected to blow.

Remembering how 

to forget what you know. 

 

Rise into infinity

Come away with me,

Come away with me.

 

Midnight butterfly

take me dreaming

From a sight so high,

reality is streaming.

 

Butterfly flight 

in dreams tonight,

take me where

you want to go.

 

Show me your wings,

covered in all things

artful and mysterious. 

Show me places 

marvelous and curious.

 

Set course for

the upper realm.

Whisper your magic spell,

with love at the helm.

 

A place where spirit dwells 

in the unseen world,

let my wings unfurl.

A place my soul delights

and vision swirls,

let dreams take flight.

I Am All and Nothing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am small,

small in my views,

I leave little trace,

only a few.

I am big,

bigger than allowed,

my stance is truth,

and my news is loud.

I am closed,

closed in my mind,

I search for security,

but cannot find.

I am open,

open to change.

I blow with the wind,

and my thoughts rearrange.

I am ground,

under my feet,

bury me there,

when death I meet.

I am tree,

rooted deep.

Reaching for the sun,

under shadowy sleep.

I am wolf,

howling at the moon.

Seeking my clan,

and knowing who.

I am rain,

dropped from the sky

where I go now,

I know not why.

I am Ocean,

vast, deep and wise.

Primordial Mother,

from HER I rise.

I am All and Nothing

and everything between.

When I’m awake,

I’m dreaming.

The Sky Shined Through Me

Dream inspired poetry by Valley Reed © 5/20

Swan Comet photo by Damion Peach

There is a point of power,
in the palm of my hand.
Difficult to hold,
flowing through like sand.

Sacred words are spoken,
and seeds of intention land.
The stale air is broken,
but I’ll grow to understand.

Truth instead,
now hangs in the air.
My heart open,
to what is said.

My eyes catch,
golden lights glistening.
I felt spirits rising….
….and I am listening.

I take it within,
And wrap it up tight.
It gets in from the tear
between wrong and right.

In a deeper sense of the truth,
I am dreaming.
Like a comet’s tail,
The sky shined through me.

 

Tumbleweed Mandala

 

 

 

 

I saw a sacred wheel
spin without end.
Sacred geometry flying.
A Tumbleweed
blowing in the wind.

A piece of my past,
and my peace of mind,
weaving an intricate design.

An imaginal cell,
looking for a place to land.
Mapping the future,
as far as I can tell.

A dream mandala
with something to say.
A strong wind blowing,
on a calm clear day
