Close your eyes


take a walk

in the light
between your eyes
see the tree swaying

take a drink
from the bubbles of the sea
hear the roar
the lion
taste the buds
as they unfold
from the nectars
like life in infancy

hear the sound
the rumble of the earth
whispering desert haze

touch your face
feel your heart
its thumping beat
feel your blood
your hope for life

wrap around you
the kiss of love
the lash of struggle
be a man
be my guest.

    Your dreams come alive with your eye’s closed and your mind alive and awake. You have a bounce in your words, carrying the reader along your path. Nancy
