both sides of light


I awoke in the familiar spruce-fir forest

as the bottom of the sky started to glow.

The salmon orange hue filling me up

warming soul to the thought of a new day.

Darkness skulking, hesitant but knowing its time is done

a soldier of Morpheus following the command in full retreat.

With no thought for the fair Luna

ever hopeful to embrace the rays of the sun.

I welcomed her at first breath

as one able to love both sides of light.

Wondering if the affair would ever be won but we’ll never know

feeling a trespasser in this mood of liminal comfort.

Thoughts I laid to rest in the familiar spruce-fir forest

as a brilliant blanket of stars folded out overhead.

I am grateful for Dream ❤
