A woman standing at the shore with her feet in water

A Dare

The time has come to dream dreams again

I want to feel colors and splash around in them

I want to imagine beauty and to chase it

to the other side of the moon

I want to dance in the clouds and

play hopscotch with the stars

I want to beam like a ray of the sun

To somersault atop the ocean

and slink into the waves

I want to tickle lions and climb sycamores

I want to laugh with a village of lovers

and families into the night and sleep

warmly in our dreams together until the

Sun bobs its head above the horizon

to beckon us: play again.
