Butterfly Dreams

Sometimes I dream

butterfly dreams,

the Sun in the sky,

green in the leaves,

and everything’s flowers

as far as I see.

These little dreams

live as long as me.


Sometimes I dream

elephant dreams,

heat of the plains

shimmers up from the East.

Walk long seeking water,

and good company.

These dreams I remember

as long as I’ll be.


Sometimes I dream

only in screams,

tears and blood falling,

and shadows with teeth.

Trying to run,

but I can’t move my feet,

and things in the dark

that are coming for me.


And sometimes,

I don’t dream at all.
