The Fortieth Dream Of The Waiting Prince

Now this morning my Lord spoke to me of his most recent dream. And he said, “My dear scribe, last night as I slept, I dreamt. And in this dream I swam across the sea. And the sky above was as grey as the waters below. And the rain that fell on me from above was as warm as the waters that soaked me from below. And the air above was as suffocating as the waters below, yet still I tried to breathe. And below in the depths I saw a forest of arms reaching up to catch me, while above there was nothing but the circling birds, waiting patiently until the time came for them to feed.”
