    "sleep walkin"


    I kissed a shadow
    not my own and laid to rest
    a fear, that a stranger, dark
    may be a test
    of what I did hold dear.

    I talked with someone
    not known to me, in
    conversation rare, then
    looked around to find no
    one, except the shadow there.

    We walked in shoes
    that were not ours, for about
    a mile or so then we
    returned from whence we came
    -- or perhaps, we didn’t go?

    I shared this dream
    as dreams are shared
    with God and no one else
    and found the dream, no dream
    at all; but god within myself.

    So as you walk upon this earth
    be gentle as you go, for
    "shoes of strangers" and
    "shadow dreams" are meant to
    make us grow
