Poetry

Step 3 (63.)

To walk in sleep
is the dreamer’s finest fantasy.
Assorted slideshows of surreal psychobabble
are good for an anecdote,
but terrible for any growth.
The antidote to restless nights
is the antithesis of letting go:
grasp the dream with firm intent,
feel the sleepscape slide beneath your feet,
and take a walk or three.
Soon, you’ll see another side,
and this is where you’ll want to be.
This somnambulist may not know
where or why they go,
but sometimes the mystery
is more than enough incentive.
The woods beckon,
and we enter into their intrigue.
