Impression

What impression would I leave if I asked you to imagine
 Small patches of undulating light reflecting high on a warm wall, 
Only a twig’s space flowing in between them, 
Outlined by the ebb and flow of a softer shadow?
Even behind the shroud of the realization 
That I had yet to open my eyelids, 
The fluid motion reminded my soul 
Of a time I had not yet spent, 
Near  a body of water I had not yet found,
But in a place and time so familiar, so comfortable, 
I longed for a return visit. 
Where the cool breath of the water 
And the mild warmth of the early summer on my skin 
Call me back to sleep, again.
