The Basin This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Night's basin
Fills to the brim
With thoughts, desires,
And dreams,

While the moon
Smiles upon it.
She is its filler;
Its creator.

We are its swimmers.
Spirits freed
And comforted by
Obscurity.

The water reflects
Images of owls,
Bats,
And black cats,

Contents undulating
Until sunrays
Rudely intrude …
And it all evaporates.

I really like this. I also reeaally hate it when I finally have to wake up from my dreams and have to come back to the world of reality.
