Sweet Dreams (to my sons)

I closed my eyes and walked into a dream
that’s full of giants and the magic creatures.

I rode a dragon-shaped white, bearded snake
and danced along the length of rainbow bridges.

I strolled the sponge-soft banks of milk and kissel rivers
then built a raft of candy-canes and travelled up the stream.

I sailed the seven seas to find the pirates’ treasures
then flew up to the moon and touched the silver beam.

I slayed three-headed beast and saved a princess charming.

She softly kissed my head and whispered to my ear
with the voice so soft, it sounded like mummy’s:

“Good night, sleep tight, my darling,
and have the sweetest dreams.”
