Dream #6

so silent this blue turns black

nothing moves on Earth

a meteor streak

a faint schwoosh far off

sprinkled stardust

dissolves into tapestry of night

Dream #5

Stepping out to find something

found nothing, no clues

everyone doing normal things

prejudices welled up dripping false accusations

who, when, how

anxiety of loss relieved in music

somebody, oh somebody up there

likes me?

Dream #4

Bonjour madame

Monsieur, bonjour

Je voudrais un pain au raisin et un pain au chocolat, si vous plait

D’accord. À boire, monsieur?

Ah, mais oui! Une tea, merci.

Merci, monsieur.

Et un vers d’eau, aussi?

Sorry, mate, would you speak in English? I can’t take your accent anymore. Thanks for trying.

Dream #3

river fills on orange moon tide

rattle of reeds shifted by breeze

barn owl drifts along field edge

blackbirds call up night with complex codas

we lie back

watching for meteors

Dream #2

chairs edge round

tracking the high Sun’s arc

across the piazza

blue pierced by medieval tower

the cafê name

Italian
