and wide awake i dream (poem)


why so

mind wanders

wee hours of morn

creep upon me


i dream

wide awake

and take myself

to isolated

mountain lake

i drift

as a boat

from shore to shore

and find myself

on treetop

sharing harmonies

with stars

and awaken

in clouds

drifting once more

from star to star

am i

the moon

i see all things below me

i light earth

in soft haze

and find myself bathed

in cool light

on dewy grass

watching the moon

calling to the dawn

with soft song

i sing.
