A Dream

A Dream
-Linn Barnes March 2020

I dreamed I tripped and fell into a bog
way from the leash of good will

and left stranded on uncertain shores
the tidal flux lapping at my withered feet

now wrapped in a sheath of green
as I became more like the water

and less like the familiar earth
where once upon a time

I freely strode and smiled
grieved laughed and played
