  1. Tonight is like my whole life.
    Tonight is like every walk I ever took, all summed up in a bunch of calls and conversations, culminsting in this –

    a message in a bottle, reminding me…

          1. Beautiful music video with this…

            Dancing on the edge of the tide. Waiting in a way that looks like nothing but means giving everything.

  2. I love the poem, Holly. How often do we wait for signs from the other side? I often have dreams with friends and relatives who have passed on. We are doing things together in my dreams. While I know they aren’t alive, I still interact with them and we spend time doing things together while I sleep. The dreams are both surreal and reassuring.

    1. I have very surreal dreams especially lately and can generally recall my dreams clearly upon waking. I rarely dream of anyone who is deceased , that would be lovely to have pleasant dreams of friends and family that have passed, reliving remembered experiences, that just doesn’t happen for me Timothy. I would love to know why we dream, For me they are an enduring source of mystery.

      1. I’ve read that dreaming is one way our brains purge memory. Apparently, if we remembered everything, our brains would kind of short circuit and we would go crazy. I’m kind of crazy and I seem to forget an awful lot; therfore, while the purging memory seems to work, I’m not sure about how well it helps keep one sane.

        But yes dreaming is a mystery and how some dreams come about that seem to have nothing to do with anything I’ve ever done or experienced are even more of a mystery. Some dreams make total sense as they seem to carry on my thoughts from earlierin the day while others make no sense at all. I think we often face our fears and do things we wouldn’t otherwise do in dreams. It seems like our alter-egos can take over in dreams and get us into all kinds of situations. Are sweet dreams made of these?

        1. Your theory makes perfect sense and I agree that when we dream we are in a sense decluttering our minds, I think our subconscious thoughts also manifest themselves in dreams. That dreams are often about what is preoccupying us, Emotionally and biologically. Mysterious but fascinating. Sweet dreams Tim. 😊

  4. Beautiful and alluring poem Rene. Just the kind of dreams I welcome. I sense a pensive anticipation in the poem. There is a romantic tension in the words and vision it creates. The description of the eyes is captivating, especially if one has seen those ocean colors before. The comments about dreams are interesting too. I have vivid dreams too. I enjoy dreaming, even nightmares are stimulating and have meaning to me. I always wake up and no matter how good or how dark the dreaming is, the daylight means I’ll have different dreams of my own choosing while appearing to be productively designing new solutions to old problems. Dreaming up stuff is one of my super powers 😂. Research and development is the playground of dreamers and visionaries. Eccentricity helps.

  5. Thank you Dan, such a lovely comment, waiting has its moments of anticipation and disappointment. Send me a sign has a wistful longing , a near “giving up” sense of desperation. This small poem was created around the song, something I rarely do., generally coordinating music or art after the poem is written ( Saudade is another poem written for the art).
    My dreams have not been good lately. I need to escape to a beautiful island but there is no escape for the time being. I love beautiful and lucid dreams and can remember even small details of dreams. Speaking of creativity did you ever wake from or have A dream where you felt you have had an important breakthrough that you must write down only to find jiberish in the morning. So laughable. 😊🤗

    The song was so pretty, and gentle!
    Your words are a crowning glory to the feel of the music.

          1. Hope all good there, Holly. Pl take care and America is pretty bad with the virus. Do not step out of the house unless very urgent and wear your mask at all times, dear. Here in India we are very strict and cannot go out of our houses unless very important.
