I apologize for not writing last night. I thought I’d post twice today to make up for it. I know its already 1:00 in the afternoon, but I woke up only half an hour ago from a sleep of many dreams. I forgive myself in sleeping through this Sunday afternoon, with it being the first weekend off of school.  I deserve the rest. I wrote this poem upon waking up, bathing my face in a mask of sea algae. I hope you like it!  

My name is written in clouds

The warming sun reaches for me

Wing flapping birds cry hello

Sunshine makes trees dance

The wakening world watches

My body tucked within blankets

Snugly wrapped in dreams

Adventure tapping at my brow

Tempting me to rise and breathe

The clarity of morning air

A meditation to ease my mind

Would send me surfing a wave

Of walking purpose and desire

To follow a shaped future

But today I want none of it

Today I wish to cradle myself

In that halfway world of imagination

Between reality and death

Where dreams carry my soul away

Leaving my body behind to rest

In the softest cocoon

Lined in waves of spiraling dreams

In no need to be awake

To soar, experience, travel

I’d rather have the impossible
