In prairie dreams skies look bluer
The white clouds drift and fade away.
Day is calling from the doorway,
With a promise of adventure.

In the distance rests my future,
Beyond dark worries of the night.
Dreams are calling from bright sunlight,
Past the shadows, beyond the fence.
Chasing dreams only I can sense
With arms outstretched, my soul takes flight!

“Décima” (also known as Espinel) is a Spanish style or form of musical poetry that contains 10 lines of eight syllables.
The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc. The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.

Bits of dreams from night before

“The Sandman is a traditional character in many children’s stories and books. In Scandinavian folklore, he is said to sprinkle sand or dust on or into the eyes of children at night to bring on sleep and dreams. The grit or “sleep” (rheum) in one’s eyes upon waking is the supposed result of the Sandman’s work the previous night.”  -Wikipedia

“Mr. Sandman bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen
Give him two lips like roses and clover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over”

                                            -The Chordettes

Susi Bocks Haiku/Senryu 5/7/5 Challenge

Seen from my window
Bounded by four walls and sky
Moonlit moment’s flight

Captured for my dreams tonight
Restless moment, endless sight
