New Dreams – Poem by Me

There's been a shift in the sky--
I know you saw it too. When the clouds

rolled away and the pavement seemed
lighter, all of a sudden, we did too.

I dream in color, of us faraway from here
but together. The life, any life

we would want, is just out of reach.
In one of my dreams, we drove up

to the mountains. A light layer of snow
stuck to the sides of my sneakers

and I didn't want to get back in the car.
I jumped off the peak, flying and falling--

ready to grasp at the air for what could've been. 

I hope you enjoyed this piece! It’s a shorter one, clearly inspired by some of the quirky dreams I’ve been having lately. I wish I could remember all of them… especially considering the ones I do remember get fuzzy only a few minutes after waking up. Please feel free to leave feedback and writing challenges in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there!
