Dreaming, floating like a leaf in the breeze,
Red fire dancing tribal through the trees,
Echoes on the wind calling my name
And chattering birds, it was all the same.
Mist blocking my view of the world from the light.
Roaring tigers bellowing through the black of night.
Intricate dances of leaves pirouetting around,
Vertical water hurtling to the ground.
Every night a different world,
Realising it's a dream, I wake.
