as
a
child
i had vivid dreams
of life in an ancient country
luscious unconstrained journeys
strange to my eyes
yet somehow familiar
as if i had lived
t h o u s a n d s
of years……ago
tumultuous
crammed
charming
not knowing which country
Mesopotamia or Egypt
no-one ever told me
such enchanted worlds
became real to me
more real
than
when
awake
