After a week off I am now dreaming about summer. I care deeply about my students and enjoy watching them bloom in the springtime but I am really looking forward to the mental break. Every time I am in a summer dream this is what I picture. It is so calm. So clear. So peaceful. I am dreaming of serenity today.Sunlight fades into
My fingers dance in earth’s lake laced breath
as sand mists against my legs
and I sink in the endless dune.
In a squint
my smile breathes
as the orange pink light waves to me.
I pause and watch the last sliver slip
and darkness takes the day.
There, I crouch
at my altar
