A flickering of time

A Flickering of Time

Awake is but a fleeting break,

A flickering of feeble daylight,

Some scant dribbles of life,

Then dream upon unending dream.

Am I the slumbering dreamer,

Or another’s frantic dreams,

Or endless nightmares welling up,

Or simply limpid daydreams?

Some dreams bloom and flow,

Like foggy tangled webs,

Filling every silky corner,

Glowing with life eternal.

Some dreams remain murky,

Whispering, wiggling, wandering,

Lightning clawing the sky,

Spiraling from an infinite soul.

Awe and Remembrance

Charles Suddeth

The moon is so fat it waddles through swirling mists,

The night is ripe, afraid of nothing, afraid of no one,

Silence slithers over everything, though it is a squeaky, shrieking silence,

The breeze lifts and falls, breaking up against countless rocky shapes.

A scent of long gone fires and smoke wanders by,

As odors creep and crawl and claw over every living thing.

They flit from one shadow to the next dreary shadow,

Getting lost in the jungle of blurs and blobs and blips.

Time halts, perhaps in fear or respect or timidity,

Or perhaps knowing of the frightening fragility of life,

The wobbling of man’s brief years in the stinging sun,

This interlude we call dream time, our best time.

During a full moon, I got up in the middle of the night and wrote this. I take no blame—the shadow self within me is wholly responsible.
