Chasing the Dream

by Marilyn McIntyre

time floating downstream

in an ancient bottle

plugged with different futures

I dash excitedly

up and down the bank

like a well trained Lassie

barking excitedly

and then wade in to stop time

the eddy pried it away

running on rapidly

burbling with life

and plunging round the bend

i wonder what the

message might have been

don’t chase me down

I’m here, I’m gone

and life is but a dream.
