Dreamscape. It’s a 6.

Highway hotel on overpass, skid marks smear the asphalt, careening corners, exit here. Weary worn, heart torn new day done, head on pillow, dreamscape waiting. Endure the pull, repel the push, landscape of living seeks shoreline of a dream. Tumbled, thrashed by roiling waves, soul seeks solitary skiff, safety on solid ground. Melancholy tempest screams defiance, into your arms, lover’s embrace. Zip line o’er reality’s dross, perfection attained, aerial acrobatics…

    I agree with the others, Denise–this is AMAZING!! (There was a day when I would have read anything with a J. Depp reference 🙂 )

      Thank you, Jael!. “Tom Hanson” put him on many a female radar once upon a time, lol.

    What they all said. Poetic prose, strong images. “landscape of living seeks shoreline of a dream” and the soul in a skiff…. very cool, Denise.

      Appreciate it, D. Much. Don’t know where the poetry influence is coming from lately. But it’s been enjoyable. Like creating a little work of art complimenting, accenting, color coordinating with vid 😀 Like I said. Fun 🙂

      Thank you, Paul. I just had to find a way to use that word “dross” 😀 Cheers.

    Love this, D 😎 The lines shine like beacons + romance, yearning, and the elements.
    Fave lines: “landscape of living seeks shoreline of a dream” and “aerial acrobatics”.
    Your poetical road, long may it rise up to meet you 🙂

    ‘cellent wordage!
    Kinda Escher vibe (provided, of course, he escaped the round mirror things, ‘a course).

    Def smoky coffee house vibe… maybe not Brubeck, better an acoustic cover of ‘Racing with the devil on a Spanish highway’. coming out of speakers in the ceiling.

      Thank you, Clark.
      Hm..of course.

      Cool… think I’d go with Al over Brubeck on this one 😀
