Last night I dreamed that I could harness the power of the ocean.
I dreamt of towering waves and kites tangled up in lightning.
I dreamt of crumbing skyscrapers and collapsing mountains.
I dreamed of elves and pixies and fairies forever chasing the setting sun.
I dreamt I could paint the sky any colour I wanted and chose to leave it blue because some things are better left alone.
I dreamt of flowers disintegrating into ash blowing in the wind.
I dreamed of empty promises and forgotten friends and people twisted into knots.
I dreamed of sea shells and snail shells and eggs shells.
I dreamt the moon was lonely - I tried to visit but gravity held me down.
I dreamt of ice cream cones and roller skates and discos held on the rings of Saturn.
I dreamed of cartwheels and handstands and butterflies doing somersaults. One flew too close to a giant and she swallowed it whole.
I dreamed that the wind was trying to tell me secrets but trees kept intercepting the message.
I dreamed the clouds were angry and threw tantrums of thunder and water and electricity.
I dreamt of dragons in the sea and mermaids in the sky; unusual but sometimes circumstance defies logic and not everything can be explained.
I dreamed I fought Time in a boxing ring - Time won but not for my lack of effort.
I dreamt of ticking clocks and yesterdays crashing into impatient tomorrows.
I dreamed of wishing wells, shiny pennies and seeds sprouting from cracks in the sidewalk.
I dreamt Past and Future got into a fight and killed Present by accident.
I dreamt of tornadoes and earthquakes and avalanches and then I dreamed myself awake.
