I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

94 Lines As Promised in a Dream

Lofty

fresh timber

load

Bay filled

with

dusty bricks

weary weight

from work

or want

burnt black

rubber tire

stacks

backwards

music

and laughter

Monday

through Friday

moods

many

forgotten

moments

Duncan

poems

in shadow

foreign

untranslated

script

will

belief

carry us?

dissecting

fragile

God flowers

of our own

promise

in a dream

promise

beauty

I keep

94

lines

what I've seen

hillsides

barren

wanting rain

our gutters

full from

lead based paint

our choices

destruct

want

smokestacks

billow

rubber ash

sullen hush

over

our laughter

to struggle

Monday

through Friday

a moment

this felt

to forget

our poems

being read

in the dark

too late

foreign

translations

change

belief

halfway

botany

body

flowers

promises

made

in a dream

94

lines of

poetry

green place

only

after rain

where Autumn

leaves

alter land

choices

songs

instructions

struggles

peace

flight

      Nice one.

      I really liked the reference to how our words are changed through translation.

      Stay safe and keep writing.

      Wow, love the stream of consciousness in this dream journal. My dream poem was so different. Actually I've been really struggling with all the prompts. But it's good practice. Good stuff.

      This was great Jamie. One or two word lines really provides quite an impact. Well done.

      This was so very different, like bullets firing at random. I loved it!

      I love this too, Jamie. Great to see you again. I hope all is well with you and that you're keeping safe.

      This brought forth so many images just like, as bill says, glimpses into the brain. The old postcard sets the scene too.

      Is this your first of 30 for poetry month? Hope so!

      Love it! A random trip through your brain, rapid-fire glimpses into a reality, or altered-reality, like those old newsreels that would flicker while they played...loved it!
