For every story I write I also write a companion poem. In honour of "Day Dreamer" being published, I would like to share "Tomorrow's Dream."
To dream every night of what shall be the next day…
When would you ever wish to fall asleep?
And how would you ever know whether you were awake?
Twilight shines across evening skies
Even while morning shadows arise
Memories and expectations turn one into another
Spinning and spiraling and becoming each other
And through each night
To dream of awakening and then of falling asleep
O, the oneiric lucidity
Of every nightmare and daydream
Twilight shines across morning skies
Even while evening shadows horize
Expectations and memories turn into each other
Spiraling and spinning and becoming one another
Lost in revery
So every night seems
Making each day
A recurring dream.
You don’t know if you’re awake or asleep
You only know you are dreaming
To dream the day away
Every dream, Every day
Every day, Every dream
