Forever in a Day
Fast asleep by midmorning
I dream of never waking
of sailing past an open sea
My shell is like a water vessel
blending into the horizon
melting into a fiery sun
Transforming into nature
I stay awake forever
casting hope into a dark night
april two thousand twelve

thank you Bonnie 🙂
“I dream of never waking”, wow!
eternity is a hard image to capture…like a never ending dream 🙂
another “wow” for that metaphor!
Oh, this one is amazing! As a sea lover , I have always found the ocean to be a great metaphor for the flow of life. I also would love to stay forever in this poem. Thanks so much!
