Swim Deep

In that time between daylight and darkness
barriers slip away like mist trapped in a jar
Handprints burn themselves into windows
hot with condensation and gloom

Stars create shafts of light
that are weaved into staircases
and allow dreamers to ascend
into a higher plain of consciousness

A stone is cast into a lake
a discarded thing that causes
ripples to map the motions of time
like sand in an hour glass

Cold meanders over homes
while spirits roam the street
lost and confused hoping to find
where they belong

You pull your head above water
wide awake and alive with seasonal virtue
when it’s all drifted away you understand
now is a time for action, tomorrow is a time
for hope.
