Sleeping in Indigo

In her mind she
wanders through meadows
flanked by mountains
wildflowers swaying like tiny
banners of dark pink polka-dots
and yellow pupils in green-eyed grass

A voice has called her here
a sound made of bits of heaven
woven together and washed
with indigo dye, its opulence
wrapped gently around her
shoulders like a jeweled cape

She listens to the wind and finds
her own voice coming back to her
and it laughs…a foreign sound yet
it flies from her heart through her
throat and out to the hazy
edges of the fields

Echoes return blended with
the voice that brought her here
She pulls the cape closer
around her shoulders and
sleeps to dream
A dream within a dream

She belongs.
