I had a dream the other night
A planet, blue and cobweb white
A small pale moon encircled it
A ghostly child that clung half lit
I wanted to return to earth
I’d thought I’d try again for birth
I came in for a closer look
On a mountain top, an open book
I hovered but I couldn’t read
The faded words, all scattered seed
The stories left for me were lost
I crossed horizons and recrossed
Them, nothing moved below on ground
And sifting dust the only sound
I turned to face Andromeda
What tide could carry me so far?
What kindly harbour would draw me in?
Forgotten endings, re-begin?
