Tonight, Somewhere

Somewhere in a cave

Beyond the mountains

Sleeps the sun

And dreams of her next dawn;

/

She never rises higher

Than she needs to

And never falls below

The long line of the ocean

/

Somewhere in a cage

Beyond what’s real

Thrashes about in fever

A restless, greedy mind

/

Praying for what’s coming

To be better than what is gone,

And for the next high to be worth

The subsequent – inevitable – crash

    1. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts! Yours is an interesting way of looking at the poem! As I wrote it I was thinking about patience, moderation and right effort – and how the three could promote one’s happiness were they more present in the mind than impatience, greed and excessive dreaming.
