seamless dreaming

for you, a thousand times over

caroline malouse

alex snyder Derelict Wave, you’re so naïve With playful thoughts of tsunamis You drip and drop, so slow, a sieve They breathe, you come, they go, you leave. ~ The luminescent fireflies; A million oscillating eyes Patrol the skies with reverent cries And never despair Over what they despise. ~ Shifting continents in the air Like castles blowing everywhere But ocean skies won’t last long, Baby Blue has come and gone. ~ The night is ending, dawn sails in Light lifts the lids, your mind, chagrined, At what you dreamt while in your bed Was real while it was in your head. …….*
