A dream once lost

Dream

Tracing her skin,

I swallow the breath of her bones,

Aquiver,

Like grass in the whistling breeze

Of my summer daydream. A sliver:

 

Lying supine in the green,

Drawing whimsical clouds

On a waiting blue.

The earth smells of

A dream once lost

To a dawn

That broke too fast.

 

Rains have washed away

An eternal drought,

Bloomed wild flowers

On breasts,

And brought a birdsong

Back home

To nest.

 

The cabin in the woods is warm

From a fire of collected logs,

The melancholic scent of old books,

And the glow of aging love.

The home that ran away

From a nomad

And lost its way,

Come back to be

Arms that cradle

Pieces of a life at sea.

 

Her morning eyes whisper magic

To a heart in slumber

In a dear dream once lost

To a dawn

That broke too fast.
