Dreaming Wanderlust

By Alexa Lavides

 

Slumbering breaths

inhale and exhale

Eyes traverse,

Under signaled ‘lashes.

Rapid

Eye

Movement

 

Eyes ahead, a lake to see

Ripples tread an image plea

Colored orange, tinted pink

Horizons skip along waters peak

 

 

Chosen hands, an open book

Printed lines cascade the flesh

Palms, a page read to hook

Touch, a sense believed to rush

 

 

Eyelid framed doorways, dreams within airways

 

 

Doorways as limits, borders to visits

 

 

 

 

 

Invisible breath

escapes the lungs

Yet,

retreat once more,

for captive release

 

Eyes revealed to

inner mindscapes

Ghostly confusions,

distinctly familiar

 

A whispered echo,

non-physical to be

The shimmering essence,

to flow as me

 

Wonder to wander,

terrain of what’s real

A bubbling thought,

burst into form

 

Real and unreal?

Hands into water

Waking and dream?

The mind soaked in depth
