Castle From My Nightmare

Inspiration piece

Fragments of a Dream
By Annmarie Lockhart
Response

.

locked in the turret

of a dark cold castle

made of rock thrown up

on the steep shore

of a raging sea

…..

from the window I see

waves smash mineral dust

mad against jagged rock

and a ship, sailing closer

every night as I keep watch

…..

I sleep in fitful dreams,

the noon sun slanted across

the room, the tower tumbles

to ruin on the shore as

I walk dressed in white

…..

toward unknown days;

but always there’s the sea

pulling, pushing, mirroring

the pallid moon and rinsing

clean the memory from the dream

.

    Wow, great image and great poem. You two work well together. I think you must have known each other in a previous life.

    Bridget, you’re picture is striking. Annmarie, you must have conversations with the supernatural. How else can you write such haunting poems?

    This truly is a haunting poem. I belong to a Dream Group and we could make much of this dream, but then you’ve surpassed what we could do.
    And the ‘castle’ just so right! Amazing!
