I wake

I wake
and waking I am dreaming
in dreams I fly
escaping something(one?)
below
my only movement
slow breaststroke
angled into sky
the snap open
the snap closed
of legs and
peekaboo in-between
a montage
of childhood

I wrote this for the 40 word challenge on dVerse. I’m sittin’ pretty at 37 words. πŸ™‚

  1. Perhaps a dream of flying reminds us of the freedom of childhood…lovely. I usually love my flying dreams…feels so free being weightless in the sky and it is always with a swimming motion.
