Dreams 2022

Dream 6
(1/6/2022)


I sit
alone
in a semi-dark
living room

a TV
the only
light

windows
are open
on a warm
windy
humid
night

curtains
billowing
spectrally
in the breeze

illuminated
by the moving
pictures
on the screen

haunting me
with her palpable
presence
even
at a distance

I smile
from her
telepathic
touch

her
out of reach
hugs

her cryptic
kiss
moistened
by the miles

we are
apart
physically

yet
we embrace
in loving
awareness

I have
never felt
more a part
of a couple

a coupling

an amorous
merger
of unromantic
of equals

I know
that she
is there

that she
is here

that
we are
one

even
though
we may
never see
each other
again
