Peeling the universe

We pick at jagged edges,
peeling back the thinnest skin
unravelling onions of the garden
we move through these spaces
searching for the root
to pull
like errant weeds of words
growing and digging in deeper
to the core.
Yesterday thoughts
skewered by time
and adjusted to fit storylines
kept alive through dreams
and the dark rotted hollowness
simmering beneath the glass surface,
shovel in hand we scrape the earth
building castles
from sand and shells
as water inches closer
to slide away the hour toiled
in building the dream
yet never sad to see it fall away
knowing tomorrow another day
remains to build back up
on higher ground.
We peel the universe beyond
always searching
amongst the twinkled lights
for the presence felt
yet never seen
but in a quiet dream.
