Shift & fossilize

Nighttime’s
undertow —
the silent
death of
shooting
stars —
the sleepless
lunar wrestle —
tides shift
& fossilize.

  1. Wow, I had to keep reading this over. Beautiful.

    • Thank you kindly! Glad you enjoyed it. Nighttime and dreams fascinate me. This poem is a reflection on what happens while we sleep. So much can change, and yet stay the same, because we are not consciously aware all the time. The undertow of darkness is the unknown. It keeps us curious, our mind caught in cautious wonderment. We shut our eyes to the universe and encounter another version of space inside ourselves. These mysteries leave lasting impressions that shape everything from our brain cells to the recurrent tides. Hopefully this makes sense. I hope you have a great day, my friend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
