Bright stars shine above you
in a quiet peaceful night.
You enter the pool too
wanting to feel great delight.
The warmth of the water
embraces you against the cold
you are a dreamwalker
ready for secrets to unfold.
Water is pure illumination
little palm trees surround you.
Feel the million bubbles sensation
your eyes closed see all so true.
Your mind, your body and soul
sense this great unique pleasure
experience it as a whole
keep it as your treasure.
Water under full moon, bright glow
we will have to leave quite soon
the other pools are all below.
A neat and modern version
of baths from ancient Rome
where you find relaxation
and try to feel at home.
Lukewarm water, just step inside
now the hottest pool and your last try
the Frigidarium lays beside
the coldest water won’t make you die.
Jacuzzi baths, special showers
this one, the shower of dreams
you could stay for many hours
nothing is what it seems.
You think of those left behind
who fought for our freedom
today Muriel’s (1) on your mind
brave woman with her wisdom.
A cat I once saw, jumped so high
so confident on top of a shower
at someone’s home, that is no lie
the cat conquered a defensive tower.
The natural enemy was not defied
I saw the water running below
the cat’s confidence was partly denied
the owner would come as you should know.
Human nature is not so different
as far as confidence, not as showers
the shower of dreams makes you confident
a joy in this spa that shows its powers.
You bathe in its beautiful colors
a rainbow of million pearls frozen
on your skin the most pleasant odors
the shower of dreams is what you’ve chosen.
