A moment ago, it was so vivid…I was determined not to let go but now it’s faded like a shadow when the sun goes in.
I am clinging to the shredded remnants of a glorious dream. It was so serene, warm, and fragrant, borne along on a slow-motion wave, skimming silken fields of corn, speckled with poppies and cornflowers. In the far distance, I caught glimpses of the purest music. I was sitting weightlessly on the proud chalk cliff, blinking into a shimmering sea. And then it was over.
