dream trickles

 

as the morning light
softly
dispels
the shades of the night
which linger
carelessly
behind small buildings
under verdant trees
beneath tumbled hedgerows
so the waking mind
anxiously
futilely
forlornly
follows the cloudy fragments
of a dream
as it trickles
temptingly
elusively
achingly
through the crevices
of consciousness
slipping
barely seen
behind
pillars of reason
columns of sanity
walls of understanding
built to protect
the soul
from
innocence
terror
truth
leaving behind
wonder
confusion
and an almost tangible sense of loss

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
