Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris

Dreams Haiku

what are dreams really?
words we say to keep moving
until we can’t walk.

  1. Oh, but dreams really

    do come true on occasion,

    if, we allow them.

  2. when we don’t allow,
    dreams stomp their feet and beat drums
    that make hollow sound.

  3. Or sometimes, quiet

    as a mouse, invade that house

    thought to be emptied.

  4. empty it was til
    dreams filled its halls like house guests
    who refuse to leave.

  5. Always asking, “Please,

    will you do this one thing, I

    know you don’t want to?”

  6. dreams drag me into
    lands of uncomfortable
    and leave me there.

  7. But always with hope,

    only light in constant fight

    with coming darkness.
