 Poetry by Lana Faith Young

Dog Star Lullaby

 

Sleep, sleep like a dog, sleep.

Let the world unroll from you

Unfurling like a tail.

Let the stars glisten in the wet womb of sky

And nuzzling descend to catch in fur.

Let the world’s singing

Rise and fall outside 

With dim darkness 

Smothering your ears.

Sleep like a dog,

Chasing the comets of your ideas,

Stirring embers of thoughts in the sky.

The ghosts are ascending white tides

To the blue Arctic moon,

In morning sunbeams they will bless and melt.

All is energy without time 

And night brings bones and mending.

Goodnight all who would wish to say goodbye,

The dream is rising.

Flick away your snores like the flies on time

And revel in your sleep.
