Sometimes it’s a good idea to suspend the notion of ‘reality’ and see what else comes along to take its place.


Ethereal tendrils
Reach out
And up
And through
Connecting everything in their path
Life and death
Light and dark
Love and lust
Destruction becomes creation
As night follows day
And pleasure emerges from anger
Through time the tendrils spread
Injecting ideas and stories
Some heart-warming
Some horrific
All connected
Ethereal tendrils
Reach out


It’s Debbie’s One Word Sunday once again, and this week’s theme is ‘Dream’.

My dreams go from the sublime to the ridiculous. sometimes even in the same dream. A complete mixed bag of elements, which may just be brought together to fill the blank canvas of my mind as I sleep; although it could also be said they may hold the key to what’s in store for the future. If only I can remember them long enough to work out what!

Above are a few photos representing some of my dreams, completely random and mixed up – one of them speaks a lot louder to me than the others. It may just be a favourite of this particular bunch, however, so I’ll not say which one.

Visit Debbie’s site through the link above to see more interpretations of this week’s theme.

Into the Slipstream

The Slipstream

Stars that aren’t stars
And things that aren’t things
Dreams that aren’t real
And voids closed off for exploration
Abstract anomalies
Absurd realities
Invasive thoughts
And hidden agendas
Buried truths and obvious lies
Misleading facts
And doubts amplified by their own echoes
Slip down the rabbit hole
Ride the streams of consciousness and see where you end up
And possibly answers
Possible answers
Clouded amidst turmoil, swirling, bobbing
Is what you know what you know?

Now back to reality.
