To Windows and Dreams

The end of the day
when the body rests in harmonious partnership with comfort
an oxymoron to uncertainty, the human will relive
its subconscious babble in the dream.
how many manifestations of destiny exist behind windows
when life is about choice and time is about limits
bury the rest in clay of different colors
body from the Earth, mind from the Divine
peering through the windows of what is lost
the sight of mounds and mounds I sleep.

I sleep now feeling weighed upon by all I have lost to the ego.
There are dreams to be had—in tonight’s I’ll be flying.

    i especially like the line, “when life is about choice and time is about limits.” i often feel the same way. the repetition gives it a satisfying sound.

    ‘the sight of mounds and mounds I sleep’ — evocative. Love this image and the lay of the line.
