Chromatic conjurer by night
vivid sights for flight and fright
cryptic signs in lust's designs
guessing games of who entwines
shape-shift scenes, expectant pause
door to door down corridors
coming up for words and air
this waking dream
almost monochrome it seems
A touch of escapism as De asks us to Dream for Quadrille #38 And finding more poets in the Imaginary Garden’s Tuesday Platform

‘expectant pause door to door down corridors coming up for words and air remarkably bare this waking dream almost monochrome it seems’ .. Sigh… Wonderfully captivating!❤️
catching the dream Sanaa 😉
Those waking dreams are the most vivid I think… maybe it’s because we can control them a bit…
ah but is this existence perhaps a waking dream?
I love this form, the rhythm and rhyme……..and wonderful word combinations. Loved this.
thanks for the reassuring comment Sherry as somehow the rhythm took hold – bit like the witches of Macbeth- bit relieved when it broke at the end like waking from a dream state
coming up for words and air … especially liked that line and the image it created in scary monochrome! (I was thinking of shape shifting too, though in a different context!)
thank you! am coming over to see how you shifted shape –
Your poem has an excellent pace – it matches the content very well.
far from dreamy this sequence – thank you Kerry
Such gorgeous gorgeous use of rhyme here!
so unusual for me too – did not know I dreamt in rhyme! thank you for prompt and prod to get the poetry ink flowing again
Great work, I like the chromatic idea, though first I thought it was a musical reference. 🙂
had to double check when the word first came to me! you are musical so it must have sounded like that 🙂
Great rhymes in this. Your painting is perfect with the words of this.
Thank you – Finally found a poem to match this photoart which I dreamt up some while ago
I like the painting very much!
appreciate your appreciation ❤ – another pastime of mine to transform some of my photos
You have an excellent pastime.
I liked the “monochrome” waking dream and coming up for words and air.
Coming up for air out of the deep – dreaming =diving?
‘Chromatic conjurer’ – a marvelous alliterative phrase, Laura, which is beautifully illustrated by the image. I also enjoyed the internal rhyme of ‘light/fright’, signs/designs, door/corridors. I almost felt sucked into the waking dream.
Thank you for a lovely comment Kim – got sucked into rhyme with this one. Poems have their own momentum it seems.
Luv the shift that takes place after
“coming up for words and air”
Puts everything in perspective
thanks Gillena – the perspective of waking perhaps?!
An abstract waking dream!
and playing with the idea of do we dream we are awake Bev
Very abstract – read it more than once and I came up with various thoughts each time…
great compliment if a poem is read more than once – thank you Margaret
‘waking dream’ in monochrome is so very poignant.
Hope the comment posts now. I’ve been trying comment here since yesterday.
oh thank you for all your attempts Sumana- as a fellow WordPresser there should be no problems for you (I often find google id and bloggers blogs a struggle sometimes)
Interesting “waking dream” to go with chromatic painting!
thank you Lynn – an apt comment for life as it reminds me of the Chinese blessing/curse ‘interesting times’
A waking dream seems so real or is it the mind retreating within the atmosphere we inhabit at any moment in time…You’ve given me lots to ponder.
as you have me! 🙂
The abstract dream within a dream; awake or asleep; drifting. Image and words so interweave.
