Imaginings

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
remarkably bare
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

    • 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

  2. 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!)

  4. ‘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.

  5. Luv the shift that takes place after
    “coming up for words and air”
    Puts everything in perspective

    • 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)
