Mirror Poem about Human Society Madness Reality Increasing Value of Unconscious Inner Brain Sanity

Like many of my Folding Mirror poems I started the first half without knowing where it would lead. It led to another poem I’d been thinking about a couple of months ago, after having a couple of vivid lucid dreams after returning from Iceland. I’d also noticed that sleep and peels are a palindrome, and hadn’t been used as such when I did a web search.

As Humanity peels, sleep Homage Appeals

limpets and leeches
attaching to me
quicksand beaches
eating me up
clouds hiding sunlight
shadowing me
ivory towers height
knocking me down

dream thieves without care, also steal the nightmare

cleared me out
improving night vision
tunnel end
vivid paradise eden
angels smiling down
another existence
I write freely
not knowing significance

Bipolarity and ADHD to Folding Mirrors by [Marc Latham]

Poem Musing about Middle-Age Life Thinking

Tomorrow’s ghosts
sing yesterday’s songs
the sun hears none of them
it has years but no ears.

Spring is nearly northern hemisphere
here the deer hear
trees they are a rustling
everchanging life on planet Earth.

This morning I read on YouTube
someone say a record was all they had
I hope you get the positive life message inside
and this poem doesn’t make you sad.

Drown Song, Sun Dry

surface splashing
falling backwards
through a block
survival built
out of broken dreams
unremembered
until they rose buried
into my conscious

can’t change the past, no point seeing future

unconscious memory store
please give me more
recalling
living beyond whole nightmare
destruction point
life is precious
looking forwards
seeing straight
