dreamscapes



bed headed
dandelion 
sunshine freckles
spill out

from 
hole-in-the-bucket 
cereal bowl
daydreams

tripping on
shoelaces 
winding
gloriously

green eyed 
and untied
jungle vines
tangled up

and tugging
fists full 
of nobody's home 
knock knock jokes

giggled 
to a 
monkey
playing

matchbook 
love songs 
on a tinker toy 
piano 

close your eyes
and sing along
unbelievably 
off key 
  
into the
stracciatella 
cirrus sky
let it go

kick out all
the tent pegs
and
let it flow

  5. This is an excellent abstract poem - it works as ekphrasis and stands alone as a most unusual view of daily living.

  6. Wowsers Rene, I loved this. It's elusive to me, but I love the flow of it, the pictures, even if I see only parts of the whole. Indigo x

  8. I especially love the cereal bowl daydreams. Makes me think of childhood. Until the stracciatella cirrus sky, which is amazing.

  10. I just love these lines:

    tangled up

    and tugging
    fists full
    of nobody's home
    knock knock jokes

    And the idea of kicking out the tent pegs.
