Collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ Lately, we have had endless days of rain - a few days of Spring sun and then rain and rain.
I found these rose petals strewn on my verandah steps.
The colour seemed to have saturated into a ghostly shell.
And so began a dream...
Carry on Tuesday #77 ~ Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier starts with the words:
Last night I dreamt I...
One Single Impression #140 ~ Fancy
Rain is a blessing
(Or should be)
But what if there is endless rain...
Last night I dreamt a Halloween dream
A Halloween fancy
A fearful prophecy
Tomorrow showers a new cycle of
Last night I dreamt
Rain became the new world power
Driving humanity indoors to enjoy
Virtual walking on golden sands by a blue sea
Light was grey
Sapping surface hues to skeletal pigments
Ghosts breathe here but cannot live
Last night I dreamt I was rain
