Attack Of The Vapours

ATTACK OF THE VAPOURS

No worries … Let go
For life’s but an illusion
You dreamt long ago

One Drifting Dream

ONE DRIFTING DREAM

Were not each drifting dream
Some hallucination or other or
For that matter – our today?

For do we not swim by we
So caught in our ocean of
Counterfeit conjectures?

Let us all then imagine
All of one another as if
As if imagined by us all

As they all imagine us
As if As if As if As if
As if As if As if

As if As if
As if

Hope II

HOPE II

May hope never die
But be the one to host
The joyful celebration
Of dreams come true
And of achievements
As yet undreamt of

Questionable Surroundings

QUESTIONABLE SURROUNDINGS

I wonder
Or at least at times
Do I live
In some hell
That I myself have dreamed up?
Shall I ever know?

Genesis (19b)

GENESIS

Each moment
Realisation
Of a dream
Yet unborn
At least until this moment
As God breathes once more

Ships Passing

SHIPS PASSING

I dreamt I could tell
My tale and be understood
But then I awoke

The Loop (A Four By Six)

THE LOOP

Woke in an asylum
Happily just a dream
Lulled myself back to sleep
Woke in an asylum

Lost At Sea

LOST AT SEA

Awaken from sleep
Recalling another world
Which one is the dream?

Each breath a butterfly’s wing
Lacy … bearing me aloft

Whirlpool

WHIRLPOOL

I seem to remember
That I have forgotten
Remembering
What I’d forgotten
Remembering
In a dream
Where I’d forgotten
I’d remembered
What I’d forgotten
But it is possible
Of course
That I am imagining this.

Who can tell?

Phoebe At Play

PHOEBE AT PLAY

Gaia’s titanic offspring Phoebe
Dreams of stalking wistful lovers
Spills whispers into mortal ears
Barely cognate, left to guess at or to Fate

“terra incognita” “here be dragons”
“tangles/tangled” “tango” “noli me tangere”
“steamy/steaming jungle” “cunning disguises/linguists interwoven”
“linguistic streaming” “silence science of sleep” “sweet soft surprises”
“nephritic jade” “jaded” “barbaric frivolous”
“intentions ill entangled” “strangely strangled”
“effortless flow” “strangely dangerous”

Words briefly shimmer forth
A disembodied voice intones in rhyme

…………“Misty and mysterious
…………Her disappearing thighs
…………Stand guardian to their darkness
…………In the evening’s whispered sighs”

… and dissolves

Beware then moonlit shadows
For as ancient mariners aver
Within those hoary mists
Phoebe dragons
