I Write My Own Story



I fell asleep
with the words
tickling my soul
and I dreamed
– I dreamed
of a faraway place
where birds soared
their songs echoing
in the wind
the gentle swoop
and dive
wings tucked
then held out wide
they glide
and I am with them
the air is cool
as the sun sets
seeping slowly
into the horizon
and a purple haze
with flecks of pink
reach across the sky
and as they reach
– I reach
and the waters lap
against the sandy beach
the smooth dance
the ripple and roar
pull and then release
and I stretch myself
I lap upon the sands
and mingle with the shells
where sea creatures
slowly drag
across the sand
leaving footprints
then erased
and the tide returns
I am the sand
and the footprint
the lapping waves
the sea
I am stretched out
on the horizon
the pink haze
the setting sun
I am I
and I am everything
for as I sleep
I write my own story.
