A Dream’s Repetition by Doug Tanoury


Doug Tanoury has written his third and final poem for “Lucid Dreams.” Doug is a forever dreamer who began composing poetry as a boy and thankful to share his work. Doug writes,“I am lucky to have an opportunity to practice my craft all of my adult life.” (featured above : Esther Pearl Watson, “Gas and Coke,” 18x18" mixed on canvas)

A Dream’s Repetition

I return again and again
To a dream’s repetition,
Repeated nightly
Where I find myself at
La Plaza de Toros en Mérida
On New Year’s Day.

The band is playing a merry tune,
And I am sitting with a large crowd
In the sombre seats
Enjoying the cooling shade
On a brightly burning afternoon
That is a dreamer’s respite.

In the ring a matador
Opens his traje de luces,
Unbuttons his vest
To expose his torso to
A white bull lowering
Its head and raking its hooves.

It charges like a
Massive avalanche of snow,
A mountain top speeding forward
To meet the sunset of a
Crimson cape and
Then I awake.

Doug Tanoury—June 25, 2011
