Life Continues—Unconquered

Dream fades,
Eyelids retract,
Sun illuminates,
Body moans,
Spirit awakens,
Pulse quickens,
Consciousness streams,
Reality unfurls,
Day begins,
Legs traverse,
Life continues—
Unconquered.

      I’m glad that you loved the end. In many ways, I owe it to a man named Yossarian. I’m glad that you noticed the blossoms too. The sun in the background does give them a nice regal hue.

      I’ve always been fascinated by the brief moment between the other world of dreams and the here and now. In that brief moment in time, I always second guess what is real and what is imagined.

      I’m glad that you like the flow of this poem. I spent some time working on its flow before publishing it here. Now I suppose I should get to work on editing some of my other projects.

      I’m glad you like these words. There is hope out there, even if I forget about it from time to time.

  8. That feeling between waking up and getting up is getting easier now that the sun is out, just a shame that the days are full of so much mundane tasks. I do like that feeling of worlds colliding as the dream ends and consciousness takes over, sadly it is all too brief.

      I hear you about the mundane tasks. Sometimes I get so absorbed by them that I’m too drained to make time for my true passions in life. I suppose I’ll just have to power through. Fortunately, like you said, the sun does make it easier.

      Thank you for making me feel good about my words. I’ve always liked playing with the written word, which is probably a result of my neurosis regarding the spoken word. I imagine I would do well to put the two together. Something tells me, though, things are better this way…

      • I do wish you’d put both together, but then, fan wishes are not always listened to 😛
