Rose petals at your feet


image credit:  http://sarabbit.openphoto.net/gallery/


I walk towards you, rose petals in the palm of my hand. I do not know who you are as I cannot see your face. The light is dazzling and it blinds me.

Something compels me to walk towards you, propels me towards you. I am drawn into a strong vortex like a magnet that pulls me in.

My heart beats fast and strong and yet I am calm and serene. Does that make sense at all? Probably not in this physical plane of existence. But somewhere out there it all makes sense.

Perhaps at the back of my mind I know of your existence or perhaps it is my soul that recognises you. In this moment, however, it matters not.

I crouch low and place my rose petals at your feet. I know not why only that I must. At the very moment when my hands touch your feet, I feel the joy surge through my veins, I feel your power and your love.

I look up and behold the most beautiful face one can ever imagine. Your mesmerising eyes take a hold of mine and in them I see my entire existence, the world and the universe. And in that instance I know that I have lived a multitude of lifetimes in many dimensions and many universes with you.

You speak, but I cannot hear the words. You pick up a petal and place it in my hand. A gift to remind me of a moment sublime.

The beep beep beep of the alarm clock shakes me out of my reverie. I slowly open my eyes and smile. Was that real or was that a figment of my imagination? Was that a dream or did I travel somewhere into another world?

I realise my fist is tightly clenched, I slowly open up my fingers. A single rose petal lies in my hand and its fragrance is intoxicating.

The events of the night replay like a fast paced movie. I am in heaven and my joy abounds. But what did you say? Oh what did you say?

Then the words "Blessings to you"  flashes across my mind.

Here's hoping dreams do come true for me and you.

  4. Beautiful approach to the prompt. I love the flow and the poetic story, but honestly the writer in me was quite jarred by, your eyes with a smile on your face. Sorry, but I'm the queen of finding the dangling modifiers.

  12. Hi Suzy,

    Thank you so much for joining us and I hope you will return many times.

    I am so mesmerized by your dream and how beautiful it is. I think so many of us would love to have such a dream and oh the joy that would be had if we opened our hand and a single rose petal were to be inside. I think I would pass out and hopefully still be in bed so that I fall back into the bed. What a wonderful dream and may your dream come true.

    Happy Theme Thursday and thank you so much for sharing this with us. May you have a week full of many wonderfully blessed dreams.

    God bless.
