Silent Dreams  by Melissa R.
A journey along this long road had separated me from
dreams sleeping deep within, but then I met up with them
again. Now, they find voice through my writing, my poetry,
and as I continue to wander this road in search of myself,
my words will pour down through my hands and into the
ink I spill over these white pages I leave behind.

May my words touch you. Let me inspire you to give voice
to your own dreams, for all we have are our dreams to lead
us down this road that we call life.
I don't know if "Silent Dreams" will ever become famous. If
it will never be famous, I will go on trumpeting it anyway,
for it is me. *****__Melissa R. Mendelson. (Comment by
the author)

When I purchased
Silent Dreams by Melissa R.
Mendelson, I did not know that it was a book of poems. I
guess I was expecting a psychodrama of some sort. To my
special surprise and great wonderment, I discovered a
collection of poems that exceed any  among self-published
authors that I have read to date. Filled with love and hate,
sadness & melancholy, hope and promise, power and
frailty, real time and time  passed  and future time, and
always with deep, highly intuitive introspection,
affords an all new venue where one can travel
back and forth, in and out, of one’s dreams with breath
catching longing to go on and on and on.

Here are but a few of my favorite lines from all the great
poems assembled within
Silent Dreams: From White
: “And you will be left following the white chalk, line
after line.” From
Brick Stones: “As we dare to face the
dreams that beg to be lived, not buried within.” From
Pieces of Me: “ The glass bursts apart as my world
crumbles . . . and now, I’m thirsty again.” From
Vanish: “I
smash the hourglass to get some of my time back.” And
Tracing Dreams: “If he were to go now, then this is
where he would want to be, under the sun and by the
garden.” Ah, now there is a poet! *****__John E. Cashwell
