1532


tranquility reigns
ethereal, there are sounds
locked in smooth round stones

here the poui blooms
intensly pink or truly
globs of midas gold

don't look down that slope
bottomless in destiny; farmers
tend christophene vines

thicker than the stalks
Jack dared climb for merely
a giant's fortune

shadowy spirals
i vanish into morning
still gasping for breath

--gillena cox




Revisit
waking
and words
flutter



i am blog hopping today at
Poetry Jam the prompt is "dream"

shadowy spirals
i vanish into morning
still gasping for breath

I liked these last lines exactly what happens after a dream experience.
