I like the never-changing sense of possibilities here. And reality, always looming. Great flow, too.

|how many people have heard mesmerising call of the sea??!! how many people have lived in the dream of forever dreaming??!! how many people's balconies open on the knocking of subtle fragrances of flowers??!! I'm glad you are still willing to hold onto the dreams, no matter if they are broken. Whether they are shadows of reality or whether reality is shadow of dreams, will always be arguable though.|

|Reminds me of California and dreams which come too quickly now to my sleep deprived mind in the light of day on a sunlit wall.

|Fabulous title which amplifies the content and meaning of your poem wonderfully. I would have loved to have written this, Axilea: it's just my sort of intellectual and emotional territory - or at least, very similar to the ways in which my mind works, though my modes of expression may be different. I love that you use such clarity of form and diction to give character to your wall's shadows... all that they say and all that they omit. Although you work with abstracts of thought, your clear-eyed focus and precision of expression resonates. You are a very visual artist. xx|

|Ahh, alliteration! I fell into it and almost drowned, but you brought me back up with that last word, that somehow rounded out the poem with the exact right number of syllables and sounds.
I also liked the reoccurring one-word passages by threes that each gave new insight. They made me focus on the words rather than the imagery-- an odd consequence that turned out to my phoneme-savoring favor.
But most of all, I love the subject matter. specific wording in the last bit leads me to think of DNA strands and segments strewn around-- living creatures in your mind that will out eventually. I bet they're beautiful. --Charlie

|You lose and find yourself eloquently, intelligently, deeply, Axilea,
through a sustained motif, the black and white of memory and then the colours of renewal, progress and acceptance.
