Flickers of Dreams

May 30, 2011

I dream in phosphorous,

unstable glimmers

against the dark,

sometimes flaring

into bright fires

that burn for days.


Other times the glow

is stable, safe,

a dull warmth

barely holding back

the night.

Or burning out

in a flash, vanished

in moments as

the sun crests.
