Sleep-waking

The ride home is mundane
Ashen air erases all chromatics
As somnolence presses close
In dusk, all looks the same

Sleep sings a lullaby
Closing my eyes
With hypnotic draw
I come alive
Where you laugh with me

In the dawn
I awake with song
Yet alone

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Dreams sing us lullabies and takes us places we can no longer go… Well done.

  3. This is a wonderful image of a good time you dreamed in your sleep and the slight melancholy in the last line of the poem indicating that the good time has past!

  5. Dreams can be so much better than life itself. (or sometimes much worse)
