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

    I was searching for some good ideas concerning bouquets when I found this web-site. You have a lot of excellent content here, am i able to use some of this article in my own flower blog? I would of course link back here so folks can see the main post. Thanks in any case. Lauren Moore

  2. What a beautifully clever take on this image. I came up empty on this one but you really did a fantastic job! Amazing penning.
