Sandcastles

sandcastles dennis nolan

awake in the dark
in the halflight
I dream
and build my castles
block by block
buckets of sand
tower towards the sky
twisted driftwood spires
memories
old stories and
tales yet to be given an ending
awake in the dark
I dream and stir
layering each remembered moment
into a new composition
a form of my creation
the sharp and jagged discarded
left to the waves
to be smoothed, refined
Changed
tossed back on the shore
ready to take its place on the walls
in the dark, in the stillness
I surface for a moment
then turn back
to build more castles

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
