Writing Prompt #202 “It’s All in the Title”

An amazing picture here :

The Dream Connoisseur

Gaze into my dream,
See beyond the blending colours,
To a place where Man and beast
Dwell side by side.

The longer you study,
Concealed images emerge,
Teased from the gentle strokes
Of the artist’s fine brush.

Seek the magical spirit
Of a maiden playing a harp,
Or perhaps lifting a flute to her lips,
Guarded from above by a watching stallion.

Flanked either side
By a hog and some aquatic creature,
Keeping the Dark One restrained
In the density of the leaves.

A ginger cat hovers by a doorway
Secreted in the Oak’s trunk,
Protecting the entrance
From unwanted visitors to this place.

Overhead, someone is looking
In the wrong direction to her plaintive melody,
Will the Bird of Sorrow
Turn his head towards his destiny.

The centre structure depicts calm and unity
If only as the images again merge,
Dark to light, a colour transition,
Filtered through the pastel hues.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. Great words for an amazing painting. Wow.

  2. Great use of the image and the title! Actually the image is a photograph I took and manipulated using a very nifty program my husband found online.

    The Deep Dream Generator if you are interested

    I really really love the 2nd to last stanza!
