Ascending the dark stairway of knowledge

Dreaming Words by Denny Lyon

  

Warm comfortable drifting

 

Toggling between this waking world

 

And the world of dreams symbolic

 

Sheets, those delicious summer skimmers

 

Glide as bodies turn side to side in repose

 

Gently

 

Quietly

   

Softly the growing silence

 

Easily falling down to fade

 

*Wake up!*

 

Comes an unwelcome startling voice

 

Eyes closed

 

Face grimaces a frown

 

*Wake up!* voice insistent, repeats

  

Ascending the dark stairway of knowledge

 

Rubbing my inner mind's eye

 

Flinging open the huge door to light

 

Asking *What?!*

 

About to fall teetering backward Into the comforting quiet dark
