Poem: Dream Snatchers

I attended a writing conference today.  While I learned many things about the writing process and the world of publishing, I also learned something most invaluable.  Don't let anyone steal your dreams. 

Dream Snatchers

My dreams go with
Me like
A silken cape
Flowing freely
Along a garden path
Where who I am
And what I am
Takes root,

I sprout
Into the loveliest
Of fruits
Bearing gifts
To share,

My dreams are real,
Don’t snatch them now,
 I have just begun,
You’ll see
How real my dreams
Can be,

I just need some time
to follow the path
In my garden.
