......

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.


 


END

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
