Free Verse Poetry

I dream in ocean waves

which steadily flow out from
every curly coil of raven hair
draped across my lavender-scented pillow

And each hope contained within
sends out a thirsty prayer
to every star still burning in the midnight sky

I lust for life while I sleep soundly,
and moan for crescendos to crest
in luminous rainbows of light
while I smile slightly, only partially sated

But in the morning I’m still hungry
for my prayers have yet to transform
into thick slices of crusty bread with salted butter,
or a steamy mug of jasmine tea
that I may devour heartily
in this faint morning light
