Coloured sand

I had a dream of coloured sand,

That slipped from hand to hand,

It surrounded and danced with me,

A colourful utopia that set me free.

 

It’s magical dreamscape world,

Caught my soul and unfurled,

The reef in my mind’s heart,

Firing up this imaginative art.

 

Crisp slopes of rainbow waves,

Fantasy and wonder enslaves,

The reach of this mystic vision,

Undermines reality’s derision.

 

I had a dream of coloured sand,

That slipped from hand to hand,

And there, within it, I found…

splendour! My mind unbound.

Whitewashed in blue

The room,

the room,

suddenly –

whitewashed in blue.

This… this came too soon!

But – I will,

I will,

return to you.

 

Whitewashed in blue

and still, I think of you,

feelings like walls stripped

and whitewashed in blue.

But – I will,

I will,

return to you.

 

The light floods my eyes

whitewashed in blue,

oh, so tender memories of you.

But – will I,

will I,

be returned to you?
