summer night

summertime -
i lie awake at night
on terrace, under the open sky
not a single wisp of cloud
the stars shining bright,
winking occasionally at me.
the night breeze, still warm
ease me into sleep..

i dream -
running through the open meadow
the warm breeze tickling my skin
the bright sun, occasionally shadowed by clouds;
dark with a silver lining
resembling sometimes, a familiar face -
a face fading with time..
