A Submarine Subconscious Dream

What if I crawled through the sand
layers of it lying across
Bore through the moist grainy land
and go deep underneath
tunneling through
to the deep cool waters
play with the fish
red blue and ruby pink
and go to sleep
after a day’s labour of love
drawing the waters blue
rimmed with foaming white spume
covering my eyes
so I’d see the sea in my dream at night

What if I forgot myself
and who wished to wait for me

Remembering the rainbow in my heart
I’d go to sleep
under a coverlet of the waves
I’d dream of the pearls in oysters
I’d find under the sea
