Frozen sleep, perchance a dream?

I wonder if you dream?

If you DO know?

What you will become?

Dreaming of your future life buzzing around in the air

As you sleep cocooned deep deep down in the frozen ground

Do you struggle?

Do you fight the change?

Do you know?

Or do you slumber peacefully in your transforming frozen sleep?

 

You will have wings you know

And fly drunkenly on balmy summer nights at sunset

In crowds like hooligans buzzing

Vibrant throbbing in the air

All too brief to know the joys of life

And then gone!

Just as swiftly as you appeared

Your children will appear for their time in the sun too

But years on

Years later now

Enjoy life!

Shine bright!

And buzz loudly!

 

Maybe we’re not so different you and I

We both dream of a different life

With wings

But are waiting

Hoping?

Struggling?

Fighting?

Enjoy life!

Shine bright!

And buzz loudly!
