Mappie #83 The Act of Dreaming

The Snake Charmer, Henri Rousseau, 1907
Magpie #83 The Act of Dreaming



Underneath
heady vegetation

to

Linger
the dark jungle

to

Shake
her snake-filled tree

to

Lush
her verdant green earth

to

Undulate
these zoomorphic creatures

to

Coax
Our ancient goddess

to

Fuse
Our ancestral rhythms

to

Active
These desires dormant

to

Awake
Our conscious dreams

to

Sleep
Our unconscious life

Thank-you Tess Kincaid for the jungle prompt this week!
