DREAM.................perchance to sleep

Want to know what Shakespeare and I have in common?
He writes about Sleep and Dreams
I Dream about Sleep and Writing......................
( apparently he also loved pinterest - but that's a very well kept secret )

Maybe I wouldn't be such an insomniac if I could fall into one of these?
All photos are accompanied by a Poem my Son wrote.............

                                                              DREAMS ARE DREAMT
Dreams are dreamt as a nights cool air calms anxious minds 
Caresses us with soft embraces of darkness 

Go quietly into the deepest recesses of your imagination  
Go to where dreams feel as real as the air which escapes in every stolen breath 
Live a thousand nights within one and remember, dreams are nothing more than
a reflection of the one who dares to dream.... 
Let soul take flight through the night 
 and upon your wake, face reality as though it were nothing more than a mirrored dream
and live life to it's fullest.

 Make reality your playground and let these dreams once dreamt, thrive under the sun's warm touch
Grow big enough that these dreams become recognizable so that the world may know what one soul's
dream can accomplish 
and when night creeps in through open cracks and windows
let the moon sing you it's lullaby  
 and drift away
 to where dreams are made and visions are born...............

    Sweet dreams are made of these
    Who am I to disagree?
    Travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody's looking for something!

    I am thinking maybe you are looking for in all the wrong places! xo Diana

  3. Suzan,

    It is clear as a bell where Gordie gets his writing talent from! Loved his poem and the images that accompany IT and your word play in the intro!

    Wishing you a satisfying Saturday sleep!


  4. beautiful! Your son has most definitely inherited your talent for writing, amazing collections of bed rooms,

  5. What a beautiful post and I loved the poetry, especially knowing it was written by your son. You have a great collection of pins on your Pinterest would have been hard to choose for this post. Great Inspiration!

  6. I love the poem along with the beautiful images! Oh! The words - " let the moon sing you a lullabye"! Sigh...tugs at my heart and imagination...thanks for sharing!

  7. What a beautiful sentiment - and photos to match! I could sleep in any one of those gorgeous beds - and I bet my hot flashes would disappear too! Have a great weekend!

    1. Well it would at least make our hot flashes more tolerable anyway LMHO..............
      You have a great wknd too!

  8. Oh I just love the poem... and the pics are perfect! What a talented son you have Suzan. His poem reminds me that we should never ever ever stop dreaming. Dreams keep us young in spirit. I love that aqua/gold fabric headboard bed and room. I can sooo picture that in my imaginary Paris apartment. I think I'm going to dream about that tonight. Yay!!!

  9. The poem and the beds are soo beautiful, Suzan.
    Have a great weekend


  10. How nice! Pics & words.

    I remember the name Boyce from my childhood. I think it was a friend of my aunt and if I recall correctly, her first name was Kay.

  11. Wow, you have a poet for a son! My bedroom is way overdo for redecorating and I thank you (and your son) for the inspiration.

  12. Hy Suzan! Thank you so much for becoming a follower.It's a honor for me. As for me, I am kind of "Simply Suzan" addicted, I enjoy every post of yours since I've discovered you.You are so funny. Hugs, Cristina

  13. I want the first one. Oh why, oh why was I not born rich??? I could do things with my house if I had money. :)

  14. I don't know why...but I'm suddenly so sleepy. A little afternoon nap outside in the cool breeze surrounded by the sounds of the birds and the wind seems very appealing just about now...zzzz....

  15. Your son is quite the poet. I love the stone wall in the second picture.

  16. Replies
    1. Aren't they though?

  17. What beautiful pics and I have pinned some thank you. You must have such a gentle creative minded son to write such a beautiful poem. He sounds lovely x

  18. Hi Suzan!!!!!

    Some of these beds are absolutely gorgeous!!!!

    I wonder if the one who sleeps in them, has insomnia? They look as if
    you'd fall asleep as soon as you hit the pillow!!

    Enjoy the rest of the week!!!


  19. Your boy is pretty talented! Sleep eludes me...always has. Love some of the ideas I see in the pics Suzan!

  20. WOW! What type of poetry does he write for girls? Can he teach my husband to write??

  21. Boy, your son is a great writer! Yes, proud Mama indeed.

    Those bedrooms are lovely, now I want to redo mine! (No time to paint my own furniture, lol!)


  22. What a beautiful post. Love the poem!!! All these visions are wonderful. Sweet dreams my girl!! (if you fall into a deep sleep)
