             running through an ambiguous field of stellar shapes

         rising into the misty depth of nighttime vapors


                   my shadow

              elongated by moonbeams

         is heated up by the hunt

              for archetypal creatures of life’s twilight saga


                  an appeal of hope arrives

           from an unknown source

                   offered with open hands


                       feeling familiar 

             a sacred signal

      protected by heart’s yearning

                      heals the afterburn of its own rhythm


                         I don’t know where I’m running to,

            or if I’m running away


     but I do know I’m running as hard as I can

                                into this lingering lope of limbo


                    yet I refresh upon the dynamic dreamjuice

              brewed from creative nutrient


              and run into a faceless destination

       chasing its frantic features


         to caress the textures of light’s curvature

    pulsating from the immense 

                  to the miniscule


             I have always realized

 I am hovering between the microcosm

  and macrocosm of my being


          so I continue running

                    if not anything more

    than to constantly recapture my original stride

               inside the universal dreamscape

Dreams seems to be a poetic theme I am reading a lot this morning. Much introspection within this poem just as within this Universe. Well done! ~Elizabeth

Brilliant conceptualisation and articulation, Amigo! Rapturous applause as the lope and the hope chime together magnificently and perfectly balance each other as ideas and with their freight of meaning. I kinda feel this is contrapuntal to "wheeze" somehow - the lung-bursting bolt into freedom. And the mood and atmosphere is reminiscent of "dreamjuice drive". And that final stanza is bliss: as others have said, isn't this what we're ALL here to do: to be who/what we're meant to be and where we're meant to be? I hope you find your natural rhythm and slipstream soon, Kartero; I'm not a good runner but even I know when I've found my pace and, once in it, you can go on forever... well, in theory anyways! This is an uber-kool write that does what it says on the tin: light runner years ahead of its time... xx

like the pulse that speeds up and slows down, the shooting star to re-appear elsewhere, inspired to search some more, running somewhere an yet standing still. some priveleged to know why there here and some not.

Ever see one tell yourself of those lines where you "gee, I wish I'd said that!!!"??? This line is pure genius, and the who0le poem is up to its standard.

As long as you are running toward and not from, you will continue to unveil the wonders that await you within the gossamer film of dreamscape. Nice trip, Jude.
Take care,

"we can handle some resistance if our love is a strong one... in the long run..." (The Eagles) your poetry so eloquently affirms, you are in this for the long run... and it seems from your imagery and the ideological freight of your lines that you are coming in to your second wind... nicely done, jude!

it's that sense of hovering, Jude,
that strikes me so forcibly as i'm never
sure where 'i'm at' if i'm at anyhwere
at all..sitting here right now typing these words
there's another me and another world going on parallel
or at a tangent and i can never quite access it
thank you for the stimulus

The hallowed heart of this poem in my ears is: "yet I refresh upon the dynamic dreamjuice/brewed from creative nutrient". That reads out radiance. The very next line sums up the human condition, especially 'frantic features.' What superb two words to condense the enigma of human 'fear,' and how well it couples with 'faceless destination.' This write feels 5% quest and 95% healing the afterburn. To me these lines are full of grace. ~~ Diana

I don't know where I'm running to,
But I do know I'm running as hard as I can.

I don't know either, but I do know that we have to keep running.

Gotta be careful of that "lingering lope of limbo," Jude, it is a tricky situation. Hope you fully understand why you are running, but it is possible you are correct and you are merely trying "recapture my original stride / inside the universal dreamscape."

Hey Jude,
I almost wanted to end this with and that's the twilight, quite a dream, so much going on in this poem. The most telling moment of your dream juice poem are these stanzas:

to caress the textures of light’s curvature

pulsating from the immense

to the miniscule

I have always realized

I am hovering between the microcosm

and macrocosm of my being

Always the small and the big of anything captures the whole. You are so amazingly talented it makes my heart jump for joy!
Now that I am awake and it is 2:41 in the a.m. I wonder what I will dream about in this cycle of my dreamscape...

Sweet dreams!
Peace, light and love,
