Silence

Many find it strange to have reoccurring dreams, however, I have many. I fall asleep and wake in my dreams in a large tree on a deserted beach. I cannot see the sun, I cannot see the beach, but I can hear it. I can hear all of Mother Nature. Though I am confused by my whereabouts, I know I am home. The trees branches intertwine to for a perfectly shaped dome. Light peaks out, gaining a green ring to it as it passes through the thick leaves. I am wearing minimal clothing and and walk around the tree and up it in complete silence. There are no adventures, no problems, and not a single disturbance. The wind stays light, but consistent as I walk close to the trees walls in circles. My find comfort in seeing my bed. Its drama are iron rise and has a thin mattress. I can feel my eyes light up as my heart races for no reason. When my illogical excitement become too much to bare I run back to my bed and cover myself in blankets and, like always, I wake up.
