the ocean beyond

waves lap upon
the shore of night
remnants of half-baked
dreams take flight

time flies
like and arrow
they buzz like a ticking
clockwork sparrow

the arc of Artemis
shares radiant glow
the arrow of time
flies from pulled bow

at appointed ephemeris
celestial rendezvous
when in time are we
when we’re not me and you

where do you hide
when you travel in dream time
when the you dissolves
into these waves sublime

you are the ocean
and all its waves
you are not an island
that waking saves

you are still there
beyond the shore of night
when dawn reignites
your conscious light

oh play out your drama
upon your little island
but always remember
you are ever the ocean beyond
