I Dreamed About…
By Michelle Garren Flye
I dreamed three dreams.
I dreamed about grandchildren
Although I’m too young.
There were three,
But I only remember one.
Beautiful, blonde and laughing at me.
I dreamed about clouds in the sky
But when I woke, the sun was shining.
You said it was my imagination.
But later when I looked up
I saw a cloud and it reminded me.
I dreamed about tornadoes
On the eve of the inauguration.
One, two, three, four…
All went around me.
But there was a fifth on the horizon.
Of the dreams, I only like the first one.
I cling to it when it wants to fade.
A beacon of hope
When the others strive to overwhelm,
Or when I fear they may be true.
