AWAKENING FROM A DREAM

Wait, not yet! A scurrying, hurrying rush, a flittering of featherwings through pockets in air to hide in clouds, and then all that was so crystal clear a moment before is disappearing into a blur of nonsense. I am sad to see it go.

I had found a mysterious place forgotten, and gradually began remapping my historical connection with it and in the process discovering so much that made sense. But it’s truth, like butterfly wings against my face flickers briefly in wakefulness and becomes only an illusion of reality. Shadows linger but cannot connect themselves permanently to the light of day.

Sad, not to be wandering in the boundless imaginings, timeless halls of unreasoned stories which touch the edges of my waking world, and though frantically I tried to hold them, they are gone.
