Symbolism In Union

All images
Imagined and unseen.

All minds,
Ancient, rusting, rain filled jars of nails,
Shimmering in an open meadow.
Where a knight, in the dull grey armour of fear,
Rides the golden horse;
The stag of a monument,
To Isis, Jesus, to man.

He breaks the jars
With jousts of laughter
As sick as stagnant pond moss;
Tadpoles in a cool tall glass,
Of mothers milk.

The nails fall
Shinning brown and brittle
In the harsh sun,
Oxidizing Green
In the form of a butterfly,
Gliding among the towers;
Among the unbroken, tilted
Jars of hate,
Where no awareness
Seeps into the silt covered glass,
Airtight and stale.

Do you occasionally check your inbox? Dreams can be enhanced (their recall also) by extra Vitamin B 6. But stay below 200 mg per day (in conjunction with a good multiple vit/min pill) . When you take too much you will have bizarre dreams (good for poetry?)
H - You wouldn't believe them. I actually dreamed about Robert Conrad and the Blacksheep the other night. Boy do I need to write about that!
Like it. I bet you you have good dreams. H
