A vision

Still trying to catch up on the prompts. This is for today’s Daily Post prompt: Vision.

What do I see amid the swirling hues,

Coloured sand, sea mist in mauves and blues,

Or a vision of a dream not meant for mine?

 

Dissolving faces, scenes of noise and light,

Happiness and laughter in the night,

Twist and curl and climb, a flowered vine.

 

I tip the misty contents on the sand,

They seep away, I touch with trembling hand

The stain they leave as blood red as dark wine.

 

A gull screams at the racing tide,

I search but there is nowhere I can hide,

The dream has left me at the high tide line.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
