“Dream Life” Poem of the Day (2022)

Dream Life

By Ashley O’Hare

There is a moment

when you first wake up

where your mind is in a dream

and chirping birds put your body at ease.

One moment where you are not yet

conscious of the day beginning.

Everything is gentle and sweet;

your skin brushing against cool sheets.

This is my dream life. 

My ideal.

To live in a world so kind,

I do not know if I am asleep.

To rest my head on a pillow

and have an equally sweet dream.

Fame and fortune cannot compare

to the freedom and ease

of simply lying there.
