Time To Wake Up

Day 23 of Na/GloPoWriMo challenge:  Write a poem about an animal.


Have you ever had that dream

where you woke up by moonlight

not in your bed, safe and warm

but maybe you were running through a field or into a forest

and you could feel your heart race and your mouth full of teeth, grinding impatiently

because you were so eager to get to where you needed to be

out there in the moonlight

where you could sing as loud as you want and run as hard as you want until

you found your prize and brought it down as smooth as a leaf being pulled down stream

Have you ever had that dream?

I do, every time the moon is full.
