I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each others dreams, we can be together all the time.
Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679)
English philosopher and anthropologist.

I dreamt a tiny dream
I stood in a bright vale
Someone crept by my side
I kept looking at the sky

I tugged at the figure
It was standing very quiet
I shouted at the wilderness
The eyes never turned to me

I threw water at the swan
The drops resembled a teardrop
When cobs and pens swing
my whooper swan shall fly

We ran with eyes shut
on a vast emerald field
Wind blew on my face
God! Let this dream go on

Samy -- after a dream!

Hobbes is today best remembered for his work on political philosophy, he contributed to a diverse array of fields, including history & ethics. I think his adduce on dreams reflected his deep understanding of the theme.

I like your peom. I guess it is written with much sensitivity. Sensitivity that is rare in the modern world.

You look like a beautiful person. No no, I don;t know you. Your words reveal you. They give you away!
