dVerse — dreamland

Image result for pond woodland animals painting fairies

Dreams are messages from home.
–Clarissa Pinkola-Estes

Vines string the pathway of
Ethereal mist day, softened
Songs of gentian butterflies
Silvery wings of faeries
Enormous sunflowers
Lily pads; leaping leopard frogs

Ogling bunnies with twitchy noses
Fine fern fronds fondle furry ears
Yarrow sway with rose mallow
On a spongy marsh ledging
Umbrellas glide, held by mouse hands
Rosy-tailed hawks survey supper

Deary me, diminutive dolly, dances
Roused when dark is day; I play
Each night/day a wildling way
Always gathering daisies, as
Messages from home, for day/day
Seeks so many answers and questions

I’m trying a new form today, called Spirit’s Vessel.

Spirit’s Vessel, a poetry form created by Christina R Jussaume on April 7, 2008, consists of three stanzas of six lines each of six syllables each. These stanzas must start with the letters VESSEL OF YOUR last word is 6 letters and your choice. The poem must be uplifting in content and spiritual in nature. It may be with or without rhyme. Rhyme is a plus. It should be left justified.  Way off on the syllables in the lines!

Lillian is today’s host of dVerse.  Lillian says:
Write a poem following the prompt — it must somehow be about a dream!

  1. Well! Love this form and the alliteration is wonderful. I read it silently and then aloud. Such a wonderful illustration as well….Turns out today’s dVerse prompt was a perfect one for this form 🙂

  2. a lovely poetic form, I must try it some day. your poem is delicious, your description is a whole new fantasy world of pleasure, this could be a lead in to a wonderful children’s story. vessel happens to be one of my favourite words and love how it flows in your poetry.

  3. What a fascinating form form! You did a fine job conforming to it, though I have to admit I didn’t count the syllables. How interesting it foreshadows Bjorn’s alliteration prompt! I love this synchronicity that arises among pools of poets.

    Like how you combined specificity with ambiguity and your images are wonderfully creepy, contrastingly cute and cleverly juxtaposed. Always a pleasure to visit here.
