|Stark realism on a universal theme, Nordette. Thank you. Love and peace,

|Indeed it seems so, and were it not for the brilliance of the stardust from whence we came, lifelessness and mundane equanimity would be our only legacy. This is a thoughtful observation indeed...|

|We curse the darkness and cling to hope. Where does it come from, the branch that saves us while we are flailing in the water? Oh this is a painful read to one at yet another crossroad and surrendering dreams. Where one sinks with that midnight sun, another will take it's place after moarning and we remove the widow's cloak. Time is our enemy/saviour and lover/murderer-this you understand and express most eloquently, Nordette...Lin|

|A gripping mood piece, Nordette. Your energy always inspires, electrifies, even when you remind us of 'ashes to ashes'...could you have been thinking of Ash Wednesday fast approaching? :) We still have Monday and Tuesday to live it up.
Ah, but dreams! They can be all you describe and then again, they can be illuminating and beatifying...
I love your poem for its power.

|'Our hopes dance in twilight
the mad shadow tango,
spinning life away from our days.
The midnight sun sinks with our visions,
wisps of silver wishes'
That, Nordette, is what we know of dreams, and, also, the other, the darker than gray. Still, hopes are better than graves.

|I've read this work several times, and it hits me harder every time. We sleep, and step into non-existence; a gray abyss. Some times I wonder if what we call consciousness is the real nightmare. Excellent piece of work. I'll be thinking about it for some time to come.

|Quite a powerful piece, and it truly fits my mood this morning, Nordette.|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|This reminds me of "seeing through the mirror darkly"... when dreams are in monochrome and are thus perhaps 2D and "dated" - and yet life itself is also just so much "whistling on the wind". The hopelessness of the writer of Ecclesiastes here, together with the classical irony of the writer whose point is at her/his own expense. Has also the fascination of an Escher artwork. Tempus edax rerum... or tempus earwax eardrum which means "Listen up when I'm talking to you!" Ahh, but when you speak, we listen, Oracle! :)) Happily the beat goes on and the music of dreams still plays beneath all the static and fuzzy grey edges of life... especially with Recognition, Sarah Mclachlan and City of Angels!! Love it... Kate xx|

|excellent write, and who can truly say which of the worlds is more real?
|Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
|Dreary, Poeish polish to this searching ode to what makes us . . . us. Our daily lives are so subjected to the whims and caprices, plus a hefty dose of not upsetting the status quo, that I believe dreams are, for the most part, reality attempting to invade our consciousness. Good a theory as any, know-whot-I-mean?|
|Reviewed by Joyce Hale
|Well done, Nordette!! I don't agree as I live on dreams <grin>, but but you make a good case for dreams = *barren dust scattered on graves.* And I guess some dreams are as such. Excellent imagery! Peace.|
