Dream bearer

She comes in the black of midnight
Moonless skies thick with angry clouds,
Wind whips through windows
Curtains dance like dervishes
Frenzied lace on dresser blows.
Snuggled below feather quilt a shield
She comes with her pitcher
Filled with the dust of dreams,
Like a fine mist scattered
Enveloping me in the illusions,
Peace moves through behind closed eyes.
Body limp,decompressed as she anoints me with visions,
Sand and sun and days of a paradise land,
I wonder in awe at the lavender skies
Tinged with pink as the sun moves down,
Caressing the horizon like a lovers touch.
She touches the center between my eyes,
My forehead relaxes
Third eye awakened to beauty and wonder,
I am here breathing
A gentleness among the maelstrom,
Untouched by the storm,
Unaware almost of the outer realm,
For here she has given the brightness
To block out the unknown foe of night,
She has harnessed my dreams and lead me
To a sunrise of calm.

Dusk of dreams

Sitting
Watching the waves move
Foam carried in to touch toes,
Cool water to sunned skin
Touched for a moment
Then carried away again,
To distant dreams of salted air
The dry on lips
Residue of mighty blue
Sky and sea
No beginning or end
Azure world growing dark
With the setting of sun.
I dreamt of endless sand
Clear of life human,
Birds gone from view
Just wave upon wave
Slipping down the beach
Rippled as it trips
Over bumps of shells,
So much peace in this mind
As heart beats to the sound
Of waves crashing down.
Awake to the warmth so far away,
Woodland and darkness
Trees and leaves rustling,
Moving through the rooms
As sleep slowly slips away
Rubbing eyes to find
Grains of sand perhaps,
Pebbles of dreams left behind
Wiped away,
And I know for a while I had visited
My world of light and sun,
And tonight I would once again return
To touch the magic
Of salt air and shells,
The soothing waves to lull
The mind into bliss.
