Hidden consciousness






Tears overflow from dreams into wakefulness

as the past and the present

intertwine to form

a consciousness which

until now was locked

in the hidden chambers of my mind.

  9. And I thought that those who have tough realities have beautiful dreams. But its the tears infiltrating from dreams to reality.

    Nice lines.

  10. Oh my goodness...this is so eerie for me. I just woke up early this morning with a dream stuck so vividly in my mind that I had to come to the computer and write down my memory of it. I swear girl, you should have ALL your work published in book form....I'd buy it. Or maybe you could send me one hot of the press?!!!

    Glad to see you come over to visit with me my friend. How goes it? Still working with your drums?

  13. I found that moving. I recently tried to write a poem on much the same subject, but put too much into it. Paring it down to the essentials has paid dividends. Well done.

  14. WOW! This is incredible because it's succinct yet says so much.

  15. "Consciousness", one of my all-time favorite words. It may hold the (ahem) meaning of life's non-secrets.

    And Shadow--YOU are a great "picture-picker" --grin!

  16. to dream or not to dream, that is the question.

    but with you, i would choose to dream...

  21. walking on a thin line between dreams and reality. I've written something about that some time ago. good work.

  22. To bring the past into the present on a conscious level can be a dangerous move. Be ready for an inner struggle.

  23. such beauty in this poem...if feels healing to me.

  24. Intriguing, the image that accompanies this one. I haven't quite worked out the symbolism yet. I'll get there in the end, though!

  29. Sounds like you could do with popping over for a dose of Jinksy happy pills, and a big hug! ♥

  30. Hope that you are doing well Shadow. The unlocking of those feelings is so important. Let the tears flow. And then keep moving forward.

  31. Sometimes we wish to keep those things locked away. It is a fearful day to face them.
