Last Night

NaPoWriMo Day twenty-three – a double elevenie


Last Night – (a double elevenie)



Blue squares

Pieced and stitched

Tucked under my chin



Feathery soft

Beneath my head

Tired eyes drift closed

Dream Dancing

NaPoWriMo Day Seventeen – a nocturne

Dream Dancing

I sit alone sleep
will not come
day has long ago
dissolved into night
and the memory of you
is slowly fading
like the light
I grasp for scraps
of memory that glow
like embers in my mind
and fan them gently until
they warm my heart
my eyes begin to close and
we are once again dancing
In my dreams

tin stars pasted to a dark sky
paper moon is an illusion
a crystal dove that can not fly
a dream filled with dire confusion
a mind trap of grim delusion
please come to me to save my soul
with murmured words of allusion
to light and free flight – make me whole

Day Dreams

the sun woke slowly

rubbing her eyes

yawning, smiling

remembering the dreams

she dreamed through

the dark night

dancing with orion under

the milky way and

partying with seven sisters

on the red planet

dreams of love songs

played by lyra that

she holds in her heart

as she journeys

across the sky
