I dreamed there was no war

“People don’t run out of dreams ~ people just run out of time.”
— Glenn Frey

how to put into words
that which is only sound
a sparrow’s cry for instance
coming from deep within
inner city tower taken down

oh I was far from awake
embattled & chasing
that which should be touched
but for whatever reason
cannot be reached

an open field
fill if how you will
poppies & tulips
lilies & roses
infinite colors complementing
violin voices singing above violas

early morning & not a cloud
in the sky
red breasted robin
wrestling with an earthworm

june two thousand twenty-two
