Living in a Dream



author’s note:

If Guinness had such a category, I'd hold the world record for day dreaming.


LIVING IN A DREAM

The apple I bit into
in the dream is like
the apple I bit into

last Sunday, as I sat
day-dreaming
beneath a watchful tree.

But my day apples
lack the intensity
of that dream apple--

the dream tells me
I'm missing
some vital part
of my experience--

the dream returns
that part to me.

On a sleepy Sunday
I easily, lazily ignored
just how mysterious
this life is...

Now I’ve been reminded...

I must remember:
I live in a dream.
