Sand-strokes…

hourglass

Night claims me for its own;

A dreamer’s sleeping light

Finds in the shadow of an eyelash 

    Stories new.

In wakeful solace linger

The granules of a chime

And measure time like sand-strokes… 

In adieu.

    • Thank you, Lance. I like to appeal to the juxtaposition of light and darkness. Shadows are to me the world in-between, and I hoped that the expression you liked would allude to another in-between: that between wakefulness and sleep.

      • During that last fleeting moment of sleep before I am fully awake, I have wonderful dreams, dreams that sometimes manifest into blogs.
        God help me! God help those who read them.
        Thanks for your work and for your words.
        Truly Thanks
