OctPoWriMo 11

In last night’s dream I was responsible 
for driving my mum-mum to the airport
to return to her dream home of Oakland
at the close of my father’s church service
I knew the dream could have only happened
in the past but it was happening now
jump cut to a small cottage growing dark
I stepped out the screen door to see the sky
lit by an eclipse of two circling planets
soon the entire dome was filled with spinning
globes and stars I snapped pictures to capture
the magnificence then the earth fell down
to the ground as expected then it rose
again the light in the sky only grows
