The Jellyfish Dream

Floating in the ocean

in the middle of a dream

a jellyfish is my hammock

surrounded by sea breem

So content

until sparks began to fly

a shark suddenly appearing

its mouth opened wide

My dysania over

the jellyfish suddenly a canoe

imagining a paddle

water pulling through

Rowing faster

pondering the afterlife

the shark jaws clasp

creatures swimming for their life

Entering safe waters

the jellyfish returns to its natural form

the nightmare is over

the sunny beach is warm

Lulled by the waves

dozing off again

now dreaming happily

in the cool ocean wind
