In A  Night

Toss and turn too hot too cold 

Breathing drawn in, sorrows untold

Seeking solace, ease, peace, sleep. 

Dreams arrive at last, burning deep

Demanding the treasures be a sacrifice

On an alter crafted of man’s every vice.

In reaching for the clouds I begin to fly

Rising higher without will into a brilliant sky, 

Finding more like me in the clouds nearby.

Below are many sleepers seeking solace and peace

I whisper to them  and their fears they release.  

Ease and comfort I breathe into their sleep

As I drift back to earth I find that I weep

For joy in the freedom the dreaming has brought

And the comfort and solace bruised soul had sought.
