lucid

in lucidity
i dream
ever able
to exert
a modicum of control
over these
tidal flows
in
the kingdom
of morpheus

last night
i closed my eyes
with
the idea of
fields of tulips
you
in a white sundress
with a band of blue
along the hem
that spun
as we laughed
stole kisses
as the flowers
danced
in the light
warm breeze

but
the pinpricks of light
played softly
in your eyes
unable
at the best of times
to tear my gaze
from you
the world around us
shuddered
as it shifted
to the dome
of the planetarium
where we lay
pointing
at the stars
that in a billion years
never managed
a fraction
of your beauty

in lucidity
i let the dream go
where it will
because
in the end
as long
as your smile
awaits
there is nowhere
i would rather be
than next to you
