~A Difficult Path To Knowledge~ Dream Inspired Freewrite #1 

I traversed a rocky path strewn with huge tomes of knowledge, these scattered between the large stones open and closed. 

I made my way to swim in the bright blue ocean,

but before I got there discovered a dark grotto.

Where people joyfully swam naked in the cool green-black waters, amongst slick boulders and bodies floated freely.

Then wedged in between stones the size of cars and houses,

and I wanted to swim with the ecstatic souls.

I looked back as I carefully made my way toward the light,

regretfully and yet understanding more knowledge was needed.
