The Dream Field

Updated: Nov 1

By Samaria Rountree, Virginia State University





The sun gently glazes the ground and kisses my face

Colorful petals float above stems covering the vast field,

I stand in the center of the field surrounded herds of clustered trees.

I close my eyes and take a deep breath

The wind flutters around like a butterfly fresh out of a cocoon,

and the flowers dance to the soft song of the birds.

I know I can always come here whether I am far or near.

This isn’t a real place

Its a surreal place

A place I come to when I’m afraid

A place I come to when I am worried

A place I come to when I am nervous

A place my mind created especially for me

I gaze up and see the sky smiling down at me.

I know I am so small in the huge world,

Yet, I feel most important

when

I

am

here.
