A waking moment

IMG_0907

Tootgarook foreshore, Victoria, Australia  December 2019

Running in a nightmare

macrabre feelings of the end that may come

The faces of the dead becoming real

not wanting to look back

in the event that

doubting reality can be reached

Then the moment of release

When waking from the dream

brings the pleasure of knowing the defeat is behind you

    I love the image you chose to reinforce this piece with; the thought of all those feet running in the sand stayed with me until the final line. I know the pleasure of knowing the defeat is behind you; it is the feeling of having a clean slate ahead.
