William Ricketts sanctuary, Mount Dandenong Observatory Victoria, Australia

The space between broken lines

dances across stone and moss

creating rainbows in 3D


Wild vibrations

move in synchronization

producing deep evocative laughter

from hidden ghosts


It devours the mind


Psychic energy displaced

within decayed walls

extracts memories

of distorted night time creatures


Multicoloured shapes weave side to side

echoing high pitched, mechanical screams

that escape between the dream worlds


Freezing air cuts deep into flesh

until it bleeds into worn fissures

sending a message

in foreign correspondence


Fracturing the impossible hallucinations

takes corage and belief

in a world beyond normality


Anticipation builds

immediately upon the world’s silence.


Just before dawn breaks

across the barrier of darkness,

the world stops spinning

as the angel of daylight

heralds the arrival

of the opening of the gateway

    I dreamed yesterday morning and awoke with more memory of my dream than usual. I was left feeling warm and confident, something thinking about the glimpse of the future the dream offered will often reawaken in me.
    I love the way this poem explores the feelings in dreams, from rainbows in 3D to anticipation in silence. 🙂

    Thanks Jaya, William Rickets sanctuary is an amazing place to visit where the sculpture fits perfectly within the natural landscape.
