Nighttime

Come and sail on blackened sea.
Images fade to darkness
Reassemble in grey
Flash white
Gone!

Scene
Glorious color
Artist’s pallette full
Haphazard faces look out
Their bodies dance unkempt tunes

Wallflower pose holds me back here
Echoes bring back the pieces
Frantic mind collects
Gluing bits
Image

Dreams
Reality split
Things known beckon
Mares drag behind sleighs
Impossible forms wrestle with eyes

Their limbs, wings, claws, flopping
Shifting bodies stand, falling
Could they stay
Quickly fade
Gone

Light
Rising Sun
Glows from time
My mind sees them still
Nighttime failed to tell me why
