Dreams are.

Dreams are

the mind cleaning house,

dragging clutter to the curb,

clearing the shelves

of a new day.

***

Dreams are

desires unacknowledged,

snagged as we troll the

dark depths of

the unconscious.

***

Dreams are

losses ungrieved,

memories buried deep that

revisit when we cannot

fend them off.

***

Dreams are

glossy soap bubbles,

all surface, rainbow, and air.

Momentary,

then gone.

***

We rise out of sleep,

swimmers breaking

the surface

and look to the brief shimmer

of dreams half-remembered

for portent, warning,

guidance.

***

And then we forget,

turning toward more

potent dreams.

***

The dreams we dream

awake.
