I lost myself in a dream last night

In which a memory danced its way

Through hazy distortions of truths

Never rendered, words never spoken

And places never seen, though I

Knew well the players that awaited

Me there, as is often the way of such

Things in that twilight world.


She danced beneath an old willow tree,

Always a willow tree when that mystic

Eye turns her way, looks inward towards

Her place in the fabric of times now past but

Not forgotten, a complicated tapestry of

Shadowed yesterdays woven together in

An abstract pattern that stitched itself across

My heart with broken needles of regret.


Ghostlike she seemed beneath that lonely

Tree, spinning to and fro in a field of mist

But never moving beyond those hanging

Limbs, their burden the weight of years

Gone by as they swayed in retrospect to

A song that only I could hear, in a voice

That was hers alone but lost to me now

In the silent crescendo of time.

Your well-chosen words swept me along to the fitting end. Good job, George. It tells me I should read more of your work. - bill

Unique imagery and concepts here, George - which makes the whole seem completely feasible and real as a dream-sequence. Just love the idea of the shadowed yesterdays being woven with broken needles across the heart - that goes truly deep with me and says so much with those bruising images. Light and gauzy as ever, with a sinuous beauty and yet shot through with a disturbance and pain. Georgeous poetry, thank you. Kate xx
