Lavender soothes the mind in night
candles flicker their beauteous light,
oil to calm the troubled skin
another day to move through again.
Where peace comes calling, the stars collide
and bringing dust in dreamtime I fly
through midnight grace and images deep
restless and warm I search for sleep.
I hear a song from a passing car
and the lyric soothes as it drifts so far,
I saw the faces from yesterday
in nights sleeping memories they stay.
Like chapters from a story of fear
I feel the menace of the ones I held dear
and running I stop and choose to fight
perhaps I’ll win tonight.
He looks in my eyes with the barrel raised
and winks just once then walks away
the moment passes and I finally breathe
the story of mind does often weave,
the scents of life bring me back to now
and eyes wide open I’m alive somehow
for he knew that I had been within the peace
and with his exit, I’ve been released.
Every night this week I’ve been having some very strange dreams. Last night was like a massacre at the place I formerly worked at, and as I knew something was going to happen somehow, I remembered the only place to hide, yet he watched as I entered and as I rushed to lock the other door, through the window he smiled at me as he raised the gun, I stood my ground and he winked and turned and walked the other way. I was also barefoot and trying to tiptoe carefully through the glass with a young woman I didn’t know who followed me. Strange scary stuff and not sure what it was all about, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had such vivid dreams. Time to release more essential oils into the air for calm before sleep I think. Enjoying them none the less and trying to garner sense from it at the same time 🙂 peace and sweet dreams tonight I pray. K
