Human Dreamer

The poet’s soul bleeds words onto the page. I believe our most powerful words flow when that bleeding comes on behalf of others. I am a Human Dreamer. I dream of a day when we love our global neighbors as the human family they are.

TANYA CLIFF

I
am
human…
born of earth
and water
into air
to breathe
and form thoughts that reach
to clouds
floating
free of walls

collecting
into raindrop tears
that fall
into
closely gathered pools

pains
mingled

where
collected fluid
overflows
and
penetrates the soil
pleading with the ground
to swallow whole
the barrier
that restrains
paths
imagined
by
my
human
Dreamer
