Dream Circles: an art work by T Newfields

Do spiders dream of butterflies
& butterflies yearn for nectar unseen?

Do fish dream of waters beyond their reach
& does each drop of water yearn for oceans immeasurably deep?

Do black holes seek to devour galaxies?
What's inside each galactic heart – can it ever be seen?

Are we each connected through a network of dreams?
Or do dreams represent a reality we have neglected to see?

Nadia: Poems like this are stupid. Meaningful questions can be answered by science.
Meaningless ones are hardly worth raising.
Wan-Sze: (Surprised) Wow! What sort of medication are you on today?
Nadia: Nothing – I'm simply getting tired ah empty philosophy.
Kasim: I concede that the word "dream" is overused.
Will: (sighing, then quietly to himself) Why is it so many people doubt their own dreams?
