Dreams of Koi

As I sink into dreams

Floating above my head

Circling in a methodic dance

Two koi

Intertwining around me

As I breathe

They shimmer

Changing color with the whim of dreams

Growing bigger and smaller

.

With each even breath

They sink further into memory

Sorting through the thoughts and feelings

Seeing the good and the bad

Swallowing them up

Into dreams

.

They lead the path into dreams

Paved with memory

The objects of my head

Converse with the sleeping mind

.

As the mind awakens

The koi begin to fade

Sinking back into the sea of the dormant mind

In the awakened mind

They become but a fading memory

Then they sink into nothingness

But the thoughts they unearthed

The memories of people and places

Sit fresh in the head

Ready to be rediscovered
