In Dreams

In Dreams

That rare moment
when you feel yourself
hanging between
sleep and awake
A euphoric state
you never want to end
Stopping and starting
doing a retake
 
Multiplying the climax
again and again
until sleep is triumphant
finally surrendering
The mind relaxes
and in dreams you travel
to another world
of visions for remembering

One Liner Wednesday

Good Wednesday morning! I hope you are having a wonderful day, but if not, just know that I understand. I’ve been there and here is the ecard to prove it. I hope it will bring a smile to your face.

Echoing Images

Echoing Images

In the perfect stillness
of this magical cave
our voices echo in semi darkness
throwing back the sound we gave
The light reflecting imagery
of perfect visual symmetry
 
We drift on mirrored pool
in silence but for our breath
The air heavy, dank and cool
Humidity smelling of death
Shivering with a feeling of fear
Wondering where to go from here

Sadje's Weekly What Do You See?

Merril is hosting at D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us with 'Echo'

Mighty Ocean

Mighty Ocean

Mighty ocean 
commanding respect
of all those who enter
It will take you
carry you, devour you,
even be your mentor
 
Stand at its shore
void of emotion
and vacant intellection
Feel its strength
impossible to fight
inevitable insurrection
 
Let its sound
envelop and infuse
the spirit with energy
Live in awe of
its strength while it
takes your lethargy

Moody Sky

Moody Sky

Gone the dramatic
crimson sunrise
that brought birth
to the day

The lightness
of pursuing
powder puff clouds
taking breath away

Now a setting sun
shines brightness
on the pewter lake
in a twilight of silvery grey 

A mood for every sky
The shimmering stillness
of serenity and calm
ends a perfect day
