Hypnogogic imagery at its best, Davy. An illuminating and life-enhancing start to my day.

Oh wow, not sure what to think, Davy–perhaps this one is over my head, as I’m imbuing it with a touch of sadness, perhaps far from your intent… At any rate, it is as always, marvelous to behold and roll around in my mouth 🙂

    Thank you RL. This was one that woke me up in the night and the words were running around my head. It is about that state between sleep and consciousness where you struggle to know which is which. The underlying theme is about not sleepwalking through life and taking moments to enjoy what you have. Thanks for taking time out to comment 🙂

I think I know what you mean! It’s weird to suddenly be aware of “self” in space and time. Sometimes I have those moments when I’m doing dishes because I’m always alone when I do them, and it’s usually quiet. But I become aware of that feeling, also, when I’m “drifting off to sleep.”

    I know Laura, when you experience it, it plays with your mind for a while. The essence of the poem is enjoying those moments that take us out of that feeling of sleepwalking through life. Thanks for the insightful comments and hope you had a good holiday break.

    Apologies JM. I value every interaction with this blog and respond to all comments, as I know the time and effort taken to give them.

      Ah, no worries. And no apologies necessary. I think you did reply anyway! My heart is happy and all is right in the world again! :o)))

      And I apologize to you, frankly. I’m embarrassed to admit that some recent negativity (from another blogger who informs me that he wants to “take me down” and that “no one here likes me and I should shut my blog down because it’s fake”) kinda snuck in. So, I think I was right in the middle of dealing with that when I made that comment anyway. I sincerely apologize, Davy. Hope you can forgive me.

      Hugs 💙

      No worries JM. Unfortunately one of the downsides of blogging is we have to deal with the occasional negative comments. Your blog posts are far from fake. Stay true to yourself, there are enough positive people out there to connect with 🙂

      Thanks for the encouragement! Yeah, it baffles the mind how one comes to certain conclusions. I try to keep it real and I’m not sure what it all means or how one even accomplishes “fakeness” on a blog, right? Especially since a blog is so one dimensional, so it only scratches the surface of who the writer actually is, no? Hehe! Anyways, I don’t want to waste another minute on that.

      Thanks again. You’re one of the good guys, Davy. Take real good care. :o)

have you sleepwalked? My children have told me I have during some very stressful periods. but I almost never dream, just wake up remembering I might have dreamed. so this state you write about , seems to me is like a limbo between half conscious awake and deep sleep, where we return to a state of full understanding before the light and noise pollution dull our senses.

    No I never sleepwalk Gina, but have vivid dreams and sometimes wake up exhausted by some of the more intense ones. These words were in my head after waking one morning and feeling I needed to change focus on some things that were happening in my life.

      thats interesting but I hope not too unsettling for you Davy, to wake up exhausted, dreams affect people in different ways I guess, I have only the thought that I might have dreamed as I said and usually something stands out from that thought, like the other day I recalled a hat in a dream and someone said I could either be hiding my thoughts or developing new ones?! But the thoughts you get from your dreams I suppose shows your deep reflection and connection with the subtleties of life.

      Or it could be that I am actually insane lol. I’ve read around dream interpretations but they never make sense to me Gina.

      Liked by 1 person

      no your are not insane! just a deep thinker with lots of intellectual property. but I believe dreams are our subconscious thinking process not some sort of revelation, more the things we think about playing on our minds even when we try to push it to way back. Manifesting in our most peaceful state. another reason why I don’t dream then maybe as I am a very light sleeper and can get by with very little sleep!

      That is so true Gina. I think if we analyse our dreams there is always some connection to something going on in our life at that particular moment in time. My dreams seem to be more intense at times when I am more productive with my writing, so there must be a connection with brain stimulation. We seemed to have eased into our thoughts on the psychology of poetry Gina. I wish I could get away with little sleep.

      we seem to have delved deeper into the psychology of poetry and its effects on our thought processes. and the more creative you are the more the brain wants to produce to fuel that need
