Hoop Dreams


It became God’s way

of intimately

speaking to me

at night

-through my dreams.


Whenever I dreamed

about basketball,

it was a clear

indication and communication,

and revelation,

that there was a brewing blessing

or that I was in the midst

of something good happening

or surrounded by good people

to result in good things.


So, now when I lay me down to sleep

I daydream…

as my mind wonders about when and what

my next night vision will be.


I lay still,

awaiting sleep’s reveal.

And I am able to rest while knowing

that whenever God chooses to intimately

speak to me,

I will listen, as I hear

-while at peace;

and allow my sleeping body

with my now awakened spirit

to always touch…and agree

with every single one of God’s delivered

hoop dreams…


because they always do come true.
