Preternatural

Not limited by
pools of dreams
yet not quite in control

Within the cusp
of in between
the waking world and ghosts

Silver threads between two realms
weave translucent visions

The Na/GloPoWriMo prompt for today was to write a poem inspired by
book cover art. I chose the cover (above) of The Book of Dreams and Ghosts
which actually looks like an interesting read.

  1. “Within the cusp
    of in between
    the waking world and ghosts” – how wonderfully described that sleep state I am sure we all experience from time to time, it sounds both scary and magickal at the same time.

    1. I love your work, Anna, and I hope you will share with us. I actually had a head-start on this one. I write down my dreams from time and this poem was written based on a dream I had about a year ago. Thank you for your kind words and I look forward to seeing your takes on the prompts this month. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. That sounds like a good strategy! I’ve been trying to keep a dream journal, but then I usually rush so much in the mornings (because five. more. minutes) that I forget before I get the chance! Thank you for your kind words, and I am looking forward to reading yours, as well! ๐Ÿ™‚
