He found himself
As light as a feather
Floating high,
As high as the clouds
That seemed to support him.

He was in a state
Of pure weightlessness,
The gasses in the atmosphere
As soft as billowing silk
Holding him up.

Images floated through his mind.
The birds flying high
Seemed to penetrate his thought.
Drifting weightless,
He thrilled with total exhilaration.

He knew when in space
The body is weightless.
The initial shock quickly passed
When he realised he was dressed
For the office.

An alien sound shattered the
Silence on top of the clouds.
“Wake up John!”
The dream picture shattered
Into a million shards.
