2015.01.03: a water dream

last night
i slept
and dreamed

i was
in a well

i felt
water
all around

i was
one
with the water

i saw
the stars
framed
(a round picture)
above me

no limbs
to climb out

no panic

i heard
a voice
echoing
in the silence
“go deeper”

so deeper
i dove
deeper
than i’ve
ever been

i felt
a current
gently tugging
and heard
a voice
beckoning
“follow me”

I knew
the voice
and followed

weary
finally
i surrendered
my will

yet
i remained
aware

the river
carried me

onward
we flowed
ever onward

suddenly
i was
in an ocean

i was
in the ocean
and the river
and the well
all at once

i saw lights
from the distant
seashore

i noticed
the moon
and the stars
gleaming brightly
in the water
with me

i am
one
with the water

the water
and i
are one

i woke up
this morning
thinking
“i can’t swim”
