Time to Muse?

   

Sea Dreams


Carried on the rising tide of night, flotillas of persistent dreams set sail, while whirlpools circumnavigate my mind - attempt to drown it.


I pray for quiet sleep to steer a course towards a harbour's calm waters. But all the while I hear the cries of ancient nightmares sinking down towards night's ocean bed, biding time to resurface... 


Thanks once again to Carrie at The Sunday Muse, where a time warp happens to allow me to post an offering on a Saturday. Ain't time and technology wonderful?

  2. I like the imagery of your poem and also love the stylistic spin you put on the image itself, Jinksy. Those pesky nightmares, waiting to rise again!

  7. Vivid rendering of restless nights! Some nightmares are not improved by repeated drownings in daylight. Enjoyed the way you shifted the image as well.

  14. The return of "ancient nightmares" might be more entertaining than those dreaded recurring dreams. Ever have then? I had two, they both stopped the same week but I still remember them vividly.
