Dream State

Left alone the forest
is deserted in your dreams
and across the fields
that the horses are left to run free
every Tuesday and Thursday.

Left alone the way to the river
is untouched and unlettered
with human influence
across the rust laced gates
all the way to the water reservoir

Stealing hours in seconds
as the water rises to ocean levels
free from human hands
sitting waiting for a painter
across the artificial lights in your sleep

and everything going wrong
in the world outside.

◄ Isolation in Spring

Different kind of protest ►

I agree Nicola with you completely. I think if you don't do it, you'll go crazy quickly.

Breathe, feel the earth below, your feet, breathe, the fret will grow again xx

Thanks for the comment, Nigel. Still feeling like we are living in a dream at the moment, must admit.

Words from a song
a dream state is born.

Yeah, the same Mortimer. I was listening to Michael Martin Murphey's stunning song 'Children of the Wild World' not long before I went to bed the other night, and it kinda proved a inspiration on this poem.

Rarely put links in comments but this song is here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI38jkzCunM)

I wish I could find this forest Andy, if only for a second, there are no places it seems left in the world, free from man's smudgy fingerprints.
