the people we dream about are 
enigmas
and they have overwhelming powers
with their words, with their ideas

how could a few words
produce
a bright little dragon of hope?

still the experience is inchoate
not finished yet,
it conceals the final result 

this state is more like a dream
than a perpetual longing--
the hope which 

alters your reality
will most likely
fly away on butterfly wings

and yet I live for the chances,
how encouraging 
when she wakes me out of bed
and dips me into a bath of possibility

not impotent fantasy
but real hope--
the kind that promises 

an ultimate end.

I'm repeating myself, I fear... but this is wonderful- the tone of it is so refreshing- hope, YES! as your tag says!

"and dips me into a bath of possibility"- gosh, this beautiful!

this was unexpected, as every one of my poems are--they just happen, and lucky for me, they're happening more often these days . . . Regina, thank you for reading
