Perpetual

This is a poem by Jeff Nguyen, called, “Perpetual.”

Dreams

Dreams (Photo credit: Andrew.Beebe)

Words can change the course
of a mighty river
and shape the contour
of an imposing canyon

Ideas can expand
a crowded space
and reason with the
blackest night

Voices can speak of things
that open the gates
and crawl to the edges
of the city streets

Dreams can fill up
our lungs and our chests
and get carried away
on the winds above

Tears can carve trenches
in the hardest of soils
and wash away the
stains of past discord.
