DREAM A LITTLE DREAM

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM

Dream a little dream.
An orange, red sun
Setting over the ocean.
A jagged cliff
Showcasing a lighthouse.
A light casting its glow,
While waiting for a ship.
Waves lapping at the rocks,
Trying to climb the steep fortress.
Clouds rolling in over the mountain,
Attempting to hide the light.
The sun slowly falling,
Losing some of its fire.
A ship appearing in the distance,
Seeking the lone light.
Its lights blinking in sequence.
The lighthouse signalling back.
All is well.
Dream well done.

      Thank you so much. I was going to erase it. I thought it might be too sappy. I’m happy I kept it.

    Thank you. I’ve been practicing with my writing. For my next book, I don’t want to hear from author reviews about show and not tell. I’m slowly getting there.
