Sea Glass Dreams

My head was clear,
No dreams, so far I’d fear.
But last night I dreamed a dream,
So vivid-so it seemed.

It felt so real,
Was an ordeal,
But I awoke with sweat,
A dream I could not forget.

Etched in my mind,
Like the etchings on sea glass you find,
Tumbling round and round,
In my mind, like a merry-go-round.

When I was manic,
I would panic,
Staying up too late,
Then forgetting the date.

Now I sleep so deep,
Sweet dreams to reap.
Of sea glass dreams,
That came in streams,
Oh what a foregleam,
Of what it is to dream!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Today I was in the ocean water, picking up stones to skip. The next stone I picked up was not a stone, but a sea glass. I held onto this rare jewel and plan to drill it to make a piece of jewelry like a bracelet or pendant. I was thinking about Tessa as I was skipping stones, so this poem is dedicated to her.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
