making it in the real world

the dream that only yesterday
spoke to you in shades ephemeral…..
the dream that carried you away.

and you were rising…
in a vortex
on coils of a snake,
through holes of cloudlike doors you flew inside
you walked on paths of light

that same dream suddenly appears to you
again the next morning,
gently tugging you downward

Gravity calls to you beneath your feet.
From under your very steps it speaks.
To stop and see the budding crowns
of violet leaf that sprout beneath the mud.

Its path stretches out to you.
It opens to embrace you,
as it yields the moisture of life and death from its rich dark loam

“Come float away on a rainbow lake and dissolve in a river of seeds”
