My poems

Golden Glow

Floating slowly down the river
Following its gentle flow
Sky is covered by a lace work
Leaves and branches hanging low
Sunlight flickers through the green leaves
Seems like magic, makes time slow
Brings to me the bliss of childhood
Never lost because I know
How to save this precious moment
Bathing in its golden glow

My House

The rooms in my house
Are too many to count
And each with a secret of its own
There's a room filled with sunlight
Another with dust
And one where the wolves
Like to roam

There are skeletons in the
Cupboards, snakes in the beds
And corpses shuffling in
The cellar
There are bats in the attic
And a madwoman cackling
That I'll never be able
To kill her

There's a room without time
And another with roses
Yet another with dreams
Of treason
I can walk through my house
To uncover its secrets
But never its logic
Nor reason

Dreamsong

7.13 and I wake up
Yet another day is dawning
Somewhere a siren's wailing
But I don't want to wake up

There's a blue cat in my bookshelf
And it's eaten half my books
But it's none of my favourites
So I go back to the Dreaming

Everything's not all right - not really
Everything's not all right - not really

There's blood splattered on the walls
And ink stains on the carpet
There are footprints on the ceiling
And a man nailed to the door

7.13 and I wake up
There's a message waiting for me
On the screen of my computer
In huge, red letters

I sense it is a warning
So I read it twice and slowly
But it makes no sense at all
So I go back to the Dreaming

Everything's not all right....


This is a weird poem/song lyric in more than one sense: I created it in a dream.
I dreamt I was singing this song over and over, and I remembered the lyrics when I woke up (apart from all of second verse), so I could just write it down.

It is Amazing! To have that much talent in a dreaming state. It's the best most of us can do in dreams to remember it's improper to sleep with our family members! Lol!

Dragonlady

"
There's a dragon in my belly!"

hisses the wild-eyed woman with shaggy hair,
as she scratches at the iron bars
with long and blood red claws.
"
They locked me up in here
-for my own good, they said!
Truth is I scare them witless!
They're afraid of what will happen
when my dragon finally breaks free!"

Ragged nails are dragged through long, tangled hair.
Her eyes glow, surely just a trick of the light,
pin-points of red fire deep inside them.
She grins and her teeth seem, oh, so sharp.
She speaks again and in her voice is
a faint whisper like scales slithering,
claws clicking, across a floor of stone.
"
My dragon has been slumbering for years, you see,
but now it's rumbling and stirring in it's sleep;

it's stretching and flexing it's sinuous, powerful body.
I can feel its growing impatience
to break out of its narrow confinement.
It won't be long now!"

The madwoman throws back her head
and starts howling with laughter, triumphantly.
- And the sound of laughter rebounds, impossibly,
like the rumbling of distant thunder,
like the echo in a deep, dark cave...
