April 6, 2017: Sandbox Dreams

Dreaming of where words end
and pauses begin..
Life is funny, superficial,
and exhausting.
Feeling low, bummed
and possibly pooped
is how my days go by splendidly. 

I enjoy slow talks alongside
the beach where sand
can fit comfortably between my toes.
Laughter is the only medication
 I self-prescribe everyday.

Rain causes rainbows
and dark turns to light
so be brave
and close your eyes
as your wish may just come
true, tonight.
