The other Dream

Elaine Wells, MFT

The sound of the crickets

seemed to be in the mind.

Or was it in the darkness

out there?

The cadence of crickets

seemed to surround the mind

and could have been heard

until dawn.

But the mind, drifting to its own rhythms,

separate from the song of the crickets,


and flickered light and shadow all night long.

When the sun rose,

the mind, remembering a dream,

imagines having been

moonlight drifting

through the blades,

illuminating ebony arched legs,

lacquered cellophane wings

in the grass world.
