Dream Poetry

A wind swept beach under a vast starry sky, a tent door flapping harshly on a beach of a sea of incredible colors and lights A lone shadowy figure stands A Guardian against the darkness  beyond the edge where life meets death An ancient evil waits Not one of my best, but it came to me in a dream along with this image. It was beautiful, but also disturbing.
