sink to sleep


It is strange to sleep alone
In a place no one knows
Strange to shelter under stones
In a place water flows.

It is safe to walk with me
Where you can read the sky and stars,
Safe to walk upon the sea
In my sleep we can go far.

It is safe to sleep alone
In a place no one knows
And to shelter under stones
In a place water flows.

It is strange to sleep alone
In a place no one goes,
Strange to seek life under stones.
In my sleep no one knows.

  4. Thank you so much Amanda! I know you draw beautiful mushrooms! :)) I think the Instagram effect adds here to the athmosphere, even though the iPhone photo isn't so great.

  9. There is a lot of atmosphere here. What is she doing crouching on the ground? What are the scary insects up to? The tall mushrooms seem to be kreeping up, too. Wonderful, wonderful.
