one thousand miles


eyes heavy with sleep
heart lonely with the distance of one thousand miles
pen falls out of fingertips
journal slides out of lap

might be half asleep already
but still i wonder
ponder
question
wish

the ponderings and wishes will presently liquify
like sun on a trickling brook
into brilliant dreams, radiant with color

i think my dreams tonight will be of
the land of pines & lakes
where fireflies flicker the night away
and brilliant stars spread a thick blanket over the darkness

one thousand miles away
