Dreams' Coffee Trees
Reality felt heavy on the mind
leaving it with no other choice
but to seek rest under one of dreams’
coffee trees, as suggested by the heart.
There, the heart pulled out a red chair
and was about to sit and park its butt.
Skeptic as usual, the mind shouted:
hey heart, what if the chair’s owner shows up?
And why is that chair even there?
The heart laughed and said: Dear mind,
mind your own business, dreams are mine!
Okay you sit, I will be on the lookout said the mind!
With a teasing sigh the heart said:
You realize mind, this tree wouldn’t
be here had you not had worries and fears.
But the mind kept on going in circles
unable to enjoy dreams’ coffee trees.
See chairs mainly red ones,
are passionate dreams
of success and happiness.
Sometimes our hearts
are braver than our minds.
That’s why they bring out chairs
under dreams’ coffee trees
trying to let minds find balance
between realities and goals.
Hearts bask under dreams’ coffee trees
while minds chase dreams in circles.
Minds think that being up in our heads
they rule over our hearts
by gauging our dreams.
But hearts remind minds
that ideas leaven in minds
during sleep because dreams
are yeasts of all great ideas!
The whole scenario is a big dream of a conversation going on between the heart, the mind the soul and eyes on dreams shaping poetry beneath a tree fighting over a red chair. It serves to show our perceptions and judgments' takes on ideas, inspiration, creativity, values, and aspirations.
