Dream Walkin’, Don’t Wake Me

I have experienced this recurring dream since childhood.

There is a glistening lake with an island in the middle.


I walk around and around the lake on a sandy path.


There are beautiful flowers all along the path, but I want to go to the island.


I look at the island from all sides, but I cannot get across the silver lake.


On the island there are green trees and beautiful flowers.


Even the water is full of flowers.

There is a single swan silently swimming.


I want it to take me across, but it flies away.


The little bass fish make pebble nests all around the lake and guard the perimeter,

like swimming sentries.


I longingly look at the bird sunning its wings on the island.


If only I had wings to fly.

If only. If only…


FLOWER wants to FLY
