‘The Vision’

Burning sun

Falling down the stairs

Slowly, gradually

 

Rivers of blood

Red and black

Flowing right with it

 

The vision changes

I’m in the sand

Blue sand

 

Out of blue sand

There come manlike creatures

Surrounding me, disintegrating me

 

Green grass

Is falling

From the orange sky

 

Sky in flames

Hanging chains

Welcoming me

 

Rivers, shivers,

Hues, images

Now find the meaning

  4. It’s so Dali – like, with the various images coming and going, disturbing and haunting and also compelling you to read it again! Well done! Here’s mine this week: http://caridwen.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/drafting-personal-census/ Happy rally!

  5. Psychedelic Visions of dreamlike phantasmagoria, from a burning sun to hanging chains from a sky in flames…fire.
    the piece begins and ends with allusions to fire.

    there’s an unsettling manner in tone, yet the images are appealingly interesting.
    it would be surreal, but then human-like figures are introduced, so it’s beyond surrealism (as it was originally defined).

    so many primary colors are imbued…this is almost a painting piece…

    very interesting. I enjoyed this poem.

  6. very evocative, vivid and powerful, great impact!

  7. look at an interesting shape in the sky and find the meaning

  11. I love the structure–tercets. You write using short lines which always creates a sense of tension. I find this write clever. Good work.
