stream dreams

On the edge of wakefulness
Dreams layer upon dreams
In the thickness and intensity
Of a well-deserved sleep
My destination
Always always in my dream
Lushness of earth
And pounding of surf

On a long road through the desert
My mind slips away
To the place where ironwood
Collides with azure sea and sky
To my heart’s pounding
As the water churns forth
And over and over
Washes me clean

These many travels
Have tired my body
So my soul glides forth
To the place it cherishes most

Monk seals and humpbacks
Winged ‘Iwa and shearwater
Tropicbirds and albatross
I travel to see you
If only in dreams
If only in dreams
