Dreams Distant
                       by Odin Roark

The child slumbers as well
Eyelids aquiver
Like his father’s 
Synchronicity remaining awake

Such innocence
Carries wariness as well
Kicking away covers
Giving escape to the spirit
Often held captive
By parental clinging

How difficult for some
This acceptance of a person’s selfness 
Challenging such identity 
As if it were not progeny’s to possess

Not unlike love
Such emotive singularity
This unique cosmic enigma
Knows well it must first unto itself be true
Belonging to no one
But itself

In the power of its will
Torturous sleep sometimes
Renders today’s yesterday and tomorrow
Seemingly averse to moving on

In truth
Closed eyelids shelter destiny’s assimilation
And professed separate souls remaining silent
Dream of one another through the distance
Continuing their smile of oneness without end
