Since Time began it’s found tucked

In Ho-Hum’s pockets

Sparks ‘mid what seems ever-dark

Music slipping from mute smile

Ne’er spied Dreamcatcher

How he’d slip into his post

Quite still, unnoticed…

By then I’d sailed distant sleep

In hopes of romance, glory


Yet, ever on guard

He’s nightly at the ready

Holy net in hand

Lest terror rise to skewer

Mad nightmare carry me off


Along midnight’s hours

Restlessly I swim dim depths

Weightless but sinking

Blind to sea-angels, then buoyed

By feathers, dawn’s filaments


Lightly awakened

No darkness recollected…

By peace-breeze embraced
