Weirdly unharmed

Wind-driven rain
hits window glass.

Meshing on like
clear nets

thrown
across the house.

 

With storm’s fierce life
it seemed
much water
hardly fell, at all.

But
dashed directly
into bricks.

 

As if spray off
breaking waves spat
forth a raging spume.

 

An insistent liquid voice.

Assertive.
Random.
Vacuous.

 

Mass impacts made a
backing track from
elemental
force.

 

 

 

Later

(After sleep had closed
this listener’s weary eyes)

Occurred three intermingled dreams:

 

Of sliding, polished
surfaces.

 

And somehow writing
lucid lines.

Which neared a mirror’s
power.

 

Since pure reflections
showed in them.

 

So those who
read would
soon accept

their capture
by word’s song.

 

 

Then

sinking

even further.

 

Through

 

calm
oceanic
depths.

 

Where sensuous feeling
fused
with sea.

 

 

 

 

There

(in a weirdly unharmed state)

I lay.

Submerged.

 

 

 

 

Yet

did not drown.

Hi everyone!

 

Another page of old prose has morphed toward poetry, during editing.

Not sure if it works ( being affected by brain-fog) ?

 

(Seems I’m going down with a virus…

Aching deeply, all over. Exhausted. Anxious. Depressed.

Finding concentration on words really difficult, at present.

Want to just lie down with a book, or browse someone else’s work.

But, being unwilling to let illness win,
and miss a chance for connection with other bloggers
(especially after 13 days of silence on site)

I am grinding out this post.)

 

Any art on the blog is mine. Hope you like it?

Comments are always VERY welcome!

 

Thank you for reading.
