Lucid Dreaming

A salt sea breeze filled my senses
as I lay in my bed
subconscious playing a naughty
tactic to keep me in the dream.

I swim and swim
until, exhausted
tread water and watch
sands of time sweep swift
across seasons, taking me too
in their drift.

Tired, I flounder
climb a dune
grasping tufts here and there
to keep from sliding back
into the abyss.

A flutter of eyelids
heralds dawns arrival with certainty
the sun will soon light up the sky

Peace resides in silence.

I pray for you, for me
for others, then more
that I may never know
yet care

and on the wings of naught
but love
will rise once more to
let the day begin.

  4. Dream a little Dream and soon in your head they’ll beam. Until you have to wake, but I guess some lovey dovey rising isn’t a bad way for the day to begin. Damn, that sort of sounded
