Reality Is Heart and Mind

My heart is a surreal lover
of eerie constellations, of promising soil,
of dancing birthed in ink.

My mind is a sun-bathed garden
full of mirror-loving monsters,
of darkness exposed, of darkness beloved.

Reality is the dark-bright we nurture.


 

- created for Poets and Storytellers United (Weekly Scribblings #57: Let Us Write (together)). Inspired by the photos shared above and the phrases, “Be an uncrushed flower”, “Burst into constellations of dance”, and “Love can be a monster, or not.”

  1. This is a thoughtful poem that needs reading over a couple of times to savour. Evocative and deep!

  4. I love this poem of the heart, Magaly, this flower heart looking for soil and a garden in which to take root and blossom. I especially love the juxtaposition of night skies and soil and a sunbathed garden – reality indeed.

  5. I can't imagine an image more apt than a sweet juicy slice from a mutilated fruitiverse, to describe your love of dance :D cws

  6. Truly amazing works of art!! Are they hanging where you can view them? I hope, if not they should be enlarged to bigger than life! As always, your poems loom larger than life.

    1. Not at the moment. But I like the idea of a couple of enlargements to delight in...

  7. For me it a wonderful poem, I like Monster Poems. A bit of sadness too, I teased my little sister and to this day she looks under her bed at bedtime, or thinks about doing that.
    I imagine your writer may think of doing that too.

  8. I love the clever line breaks and how when I re-read it I find more ways to adore this poem. And I really love the reminder that the things we care for and give our attention to will become our reality.

  10. The contrast is gorgeous - one without the other and we lose the pizazz!

    1. I completely agree. Also, I really enjoy saying the "pizazz" aloud... over and over, lol!
