I hear drums. There’s a constant thump-thump sounding from the sky. The sky is a brilliant shade of blue, with sparks flying from one end of the horizon to the other. The magic in the air is manifesting itself in the music and the beauty. As sparks fly upwards, a streak of yellow paints the sky with an ethereal paint brush, giving form to previously unknown creatures. These are creatures that all celebrate the glory of this world, and the one beyond. There are stars that swim in the ocean, and dolphins in the sky.
A figure rises from the water, floating skywards. Shimmering with silver star light, the figure is too brilliant to look at. And yet I know it’s not just the light that makes me too afraid to look at it. The figure is what I have been dreaming of. I can just make out a light silhouette. The slim form of the limbs, the curve of the hips, the swell of the breasts, the cascading hair, it was all perfection.
The figure reaches out to me. She treads lightly on the sand, leaving no foot prints. She leaves wet foot prints in her wake. I freeze in my place, unable to walk to her. She almost breaks my heart when she stops a few feet away from me. I feel warmth growing in my chest. My heart begins to beat faster. I summon all my strength of will and make my foot move forward, a little closer to the impossibly perfect figure in front of me. And then another step, and then another… It seemed forever until I was standing right in front of her, and I could feel her beauty radiating from her body, hitting me like a cool summer breeze on a hot day at work. It fills my senses and makes me want to forget myself…
I jump, and embrace her in a tight hug. She laughs a magical sing song laugh, and does something that I can only describe as evaporates. And now all I have left of her is a smile on my face, and a song In my heart.
