Dream Weaver *

The legend of The Dream Catcher has been told by Native American Indians for generations.

The Catcher is created by the hands of the Dream Weaver who is guided by the spirits of darkness and light.


In the full light of the moon,

within the woods she began

gathering all that was needed.

Upon bended knees she

set about her task, quietly

reciting ancient ritual verses.

Gently bending a willow branch

to form a circle of strength.

Using silken spider thread,

she begins creating a magical

knotted web, there in nights

evil dreams are trapped.

Below the circle she hangs

multiple strands of threaded

feathers, they flutter upon

nights breeze gently guiding

the light of life’s beauty

into your dreams.


Have no fears of evil dreams.

Her talisman will keep them

at bay until mornings light,

so you my sleep peacefully.

  1. it’s a lovely poem; I like the concept of the dream weaver ‘guiding the light of life’s beauty’ into one’s dreams πŸ™‚ where was she when I needed her last night ? reminded me of Gary Wright’s magnificent ‘Dream Weaver’ song from ’72: still sounds great!

    1. Thank you, John. She was probably in a meeting with the worlds spirits. πŸ˜‰ that is the song just a more instrumental version, I likes it also.

  2. You have eloquently captured the essence of a dreamcatcher at its beginning! I can envision the dream weaver (love that she is guided by both light and darkness) gracefully weaving her talisman, creating a pattern for others to learn from. πŸ™‚
