She was caught up in her dreams
brought down to her knees
by the desire
to breathe everything in.
It started with the sunset
pink glow about the horizon
shadows stretched long
and you could hear
the roar of waves at her feet.
It started with the star-filled skies
as she laid down in the darkness
the sound of crickets
swelled in the distance
the world was full of life
and yet many were asleep
but she was awake in her dreams.
It started with the joyful rise of morning sun
when the dew settles upon the rose’s lips
and a small chill that moves her limbs
to cradle herself in embrace.
She is alive in the coolness
she is alive in the beating warmth of her heart
she is alive in these moments
waiting for the next best thing
that happens before her eyes
she lays in the haze of her amazement
a small smile slightly tickles her lips
a flash of color kisses her cheeks
and her eyes, in wonder
change a shade
from grayish-green to blue
she was ever so thankful
to be caught up in her dreams.
