The tide of sleep

As the tide of sleep moves out,
Caves are left behind,
Long lost dreads and fears,
Now like dinosaur skeletons
Littering the early morning gloom.
Once I feared to tread
These spaces between sleep and waking,
But the tide has moved with time,
And I wonder at distant memories
Long abandoned now finally safe with teeth pulled out, venom drained,
So why does my stomach still flutter,
To walk in fields long ago left fallow,
By a mind consumed by adult things?

    Posted a poem recently about that space between waking and sleeping. A powerful time of insights in my experience. Victoria
