I Wake Up and I am Dreaming (villanelle)

I wake up and I am dreaming
Walking brisk on seaside trail
Full moon on the water gleaming

Falling stars in black sky streaming
Such is my midnight’s tale
I wake up and I am dreaming

Ocean waves the sand redeeming
Full force wind a salty gale
Full moon on the water gleaming

Thermal currents flight paths scheming; Eagle’s call a primal screaming
Freefall to the sea below; Direction altered by feathered tail
I wake up and I am dreaming

Pulsing sea below is teeming
Krill effervescent, Life abundant feeds the whale
Full moon on the water gleaming

Are these things real or are they seeming
On air and water I do sail
I wake up and I am dreaming
Full moon on the water gleaming
