A gift from dreamtime

“Oh!
I have something beautiful to show you.”

Her eyes flicker open closed,
her hand reaches out, heel of palm up,
“see, when you hold it up to the light it sparkles!”

Suddenly, a pull back, a disappointed
“oh” as her empty hand
tucks under her still curled, still waking body.

She doesn’t know she has already
given her gift.
