Island of Dreams

Reluctance weighs me down

when light dances

through my happy eyelids

Each bothering moment

pulls me farther

from my safe nest

Where everything works

Where all things are calm

and I am walking

In places where ones

who are no longer here

sit with me a moment

and the empty place inside

Fills once again with their warm light

This safe nest of quilts …

pillows angled properly to hold me

like true love-

where my best answers await

where the cuts from sharp words heal

Where my heart rests

and renews its vow

to bring me through another day

My solitude

My small kingdom

My tiny cottage-

Some days- I can hardly wait

to use my return nightly ticket

to my very own

Island of dreams
