DANCING IN THE DARK

Treading down a well known path

I found myself a little lost

Lost in thought and in way

A little frown my brows did cross

 

Wondering where I’ve stumbled to

Trying to figure a quick way out

Round and round I circled shrubs

I failed to figure my way about

Tired of trying I did give up

I sat down thus, on a fallen log

Lady sleep came calling me

Gate to dreamland, I went and knocked

 

I danced around, my boots kicked off

Night time creatures held my hands

I toasted with wine and drank it too

Making merry on the forest sands

 

I felt a quiver, a chirping sound

My eyes opened to bunnies and birds

They disappeared as soon as I woke

I woke up to that familiar world

 Image

The same old trees and bushes I’d seen

I recognized the road to home

I took to kitchen, baked some goodies

Reminiscing the night in morn

 

It felt so real the dream that is

 I felt my feet sore from the dance

I laid down on my bed and thought

‘To relive the night is what I want’

 

But never did I dream again

As lucid as that night I hark

For never more have I felt alive

Than that time, I’d danced in the dark.
