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.
