Rest in Dreams

I rest in dreams
sleep interrupted
by other lives
Sometimes drifting in the ocean
floating calmly on an endless sea
Sometimes lovers catch me out
oh the bliss of limbs entwined
wanton and careless
unmindful of care
Nightmares too
An angry sea engulfs me
carries me away against my will
Yet somewhere in my heart I know
this too, 
a temporary life
and I will be
let go


for Prompt Nights


  1. Yet somewhere in my heart I know
    this too, a temporary life

    It is wise to be aware nothing is permanent. The realization makes us more guarded in our dealings. Rightly so Ellecee!


  2. Whistles!!! Gosh Linda :D this is absolutely breathtaking verse. Especially love the images of "Sometimes lovers catch me out, oh the bliss of limbs entwined wanton and careless,unmindful of care." Sigh, it would be wonderful if we could just let ourselves loose and free. Beautifully penned. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,

  3. There is a lovely quality of cultivated silence in this - of detached observation- in the imagery you've chosen.

  4. What is it about the sea that draws us in? Both calming and frightening at the same time...gorgeous choice of image to go with your words :D XXX

  5. peace could be felt here...beautifully penned...

  6. How important it is we don't waste our lives but use our time to the fullest. Nothing is worse than regrets for what we didn't do.

  7. Am enjoying reading some of your posts. Night can be many things and you have pulled some of them in here.
