NIGHT DECOYS

lucid-dream-flying

In her dreams

she flies.

Through frozen midnight

she sweeps so low

tree tops curl.

Your offering was small

a scent of ghost.

You were invisible

upon her sheets.

She breathed

and listened.

The stillness stifled.

The ticking

of the clock

was a decoy

in her mind.

“Two golden hours between sunrise and sunset. Both are set with 60 diamond minutes. No reward is offered. They are gone forever.”…. ..Horace Mann

About redcontroversy

I know I'm a stargazing,skywatching,storm loving, sungazing addict. Environmentalist, political blogger, professional photographer, writer, artist...my favourite quote is: "If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive". ~ Eleonora Duse ~ ...my soul is definitely alive.
