What a beautiful dream


I dreamed being a caterpillar

Flying into the dark space on a wide green leaf,

Searching for a beautiful star,

Who could be my other half.


When I finally found her,

A celestial dark wind came out of nowhere,

Pushing me away and away from her,

Like he did not want me to land there.


The moon intervened and said;

“Dark wind, let him go where he deserves to be,

Don’t you see? the star is sad”,

And he complied at once.


As soon as I landed,

I hugged her,

I prayed,

And I woke up happy thinking about her.
