Hailing a Whale - In the Dreamtime

The longest day came and went

exhausted, I slipped into a slumber

now, traveling the realms of dreams

blue mist surrounds me, and I wonder

what will I see once my eyes adjust


I am standing in the middle of a meadow

filled with wildflowers as far as you can see

there is a small path, so I start my quest

winding downward, to a sandy  beach


a small group of people are gathered

wearing colorful fanciful hats and

drinking pink champagne, I realize

I have none and make a flower wreath


there is a small island not too far out

shells are sparkling in beautiful colors

"how can we get there", they whisper

I look about, too tired to try and swim


in silence, I think I will ride a whale

wading out in the warm summer water

as if in a busy city, I hail a whale

he takes me to the island of shells


I graciously say, "Thank-you my friend"

the star shaped shells, glistening bright

placing one to my ear,  I hear a midsummer

song,  lyrical in nature, soothing to the soul


Magic happens here all the time

you only need to truly believe

life is filled with riddles and rhymes

you are the master of stories weaved


in the dream-time, all is connected

past, present and future revealed

joy is found in the unexpected

here the soul can begin to heal
