moonbeams crash over you like waves.
your eyes open to clouds soaring above your head, dancing among the comets that streak the night sky. above you is eternity, a stretching abyss that welcomes you with open arms. you lay on clouds, softer than feathers, that envelop you. a small tear falls down your face as you awake from your slumber, tracing a cool line against your skin. slowly you climb to your feet, your toes digging into the fluff beneath you. it is soft and cool.
again you look up at this beautiful place that surrounds you; a thousand stars shine above your head, seen clearly despite the clouds. and the clouds themselves shine, as if they have been doused in starlight. colors fly around you as if they are silken cloths, thrown to the wind; they flutter in the space, rippling blue and purple. the colors are like mist, and they shroud you, protecting you like a blanket, yet the sky is still visible.
another tear comes to your eye, but not because of sleep.
slowly, the clouds let you go and you float towards the heavens. color swirls through your fingertips and comes to rest on your shoulders, forming a robe that flutters behind you. it changes at every moment, slipping into nothing and then bursting again into a rainbow, rich violets and sapphires that fall and twist around you. the stars are there, in front of you, and they begin to fall. a rain of a thousand twinkling lights fills the void. one falls into your hand and stays for a moment, glowing brightly. then it leaps out of your hand to be with its brothers and sisters, soon to be replaced. you watch in wonder as the world, breathing with light and color against darkness, fills this sky with life.
you are weightless, a star falling in reverse, approaching the welcoming heavens.
