On the Crest of a Dream


On the Crest of a Dream

I take one fatal footstep

On this forbidding track

The breezes tremble

In their duplicitous silence

It lies secluded

This tortured landscape

Secreted in mist

Then briefly incandescent

Cascade in thunder

Against night skies

Sweeping the darkness

And one small candle

Into slumber slips

Aching at the loss

On the crest of a dream
