Dreamcatcher

Fishgathering
inside Cauldron
of Reverie

Visions
some replay’d
in exact morsel
but briefly
at times
‘twixt months
e’en years

blown There
all Dreamers’ senses
in black and white
sometimes color

into feeling…

… Really There

till Sleep
thy breath
be lost

(Dreamcatcher craft by my neighbor, Etti)

Breach

whimsical glimpse
in my sleep
only shadows
of my thoughts

the tongue
of my mind
numb
speechless

knowing her name
knowing the dream of her
cannot hear me

until
the snake
of untimely darkness
becomes a comfort
I’ll never remember

Figment on a Thread

I keep returning here
from another dream
knowing what’s
around every next corner
behind every next doorway
beneath every next footstep

but then the haze be sever’d
without tocsin
bleeds out the vision
evaporates its memory

till outside my sleep
a spark in distant time
bethinks that same place
where I’ve never been

or have I?
sometime else?

Subway Siesta

eyes in the clouds
chin on my chest
shoulders rocking side to side                              
from along straightaways
against curves
so many screeches
so many clackety-clacks
so many loudspeaker voices
years of underground reverie
of subconsciousness
always awakening me
on time
at my destination

                                              the card deck
                                              of my footprints
                                              shuffl’d
                                              cut
                                              reshuffl’d
                                              dealt
                                              to the many myselves
                                              till I’m awaken as one
                                              to a fading memory
                                              of those last hands

                                             sometimes
                                             a struggle
                                             to a complete fold

blind dreams

                                    all beyond this flesh of breath
                                    do gaze
                                    and invade
                                    thy fleece
                                    thy savor
                                    thy redolence
                                    thy song
                                    inspiring pillow’d imagination
                                    with trepidation
                                    with amenity
                                    within night eternal
