through the looking glass

head up in the clouds
I watch
cascades of colour
floating up
from nowhere

drowning in sound
I follow
droplets of music
like shimmering
threads in the air

swaying in a breeze
I listen
to the scent of flowers
pinpricks of light
in utter darkness

a ray of sunshine
holds me safe
like a life line
through this
labyrinth of dreams

I am lost
but found
in a sea made up
by my own mind
and cast adrift

perchance to dream
perchance to understand
perchance to gain

wisdom

on my travels.

Woke up with this but parts of it have been going round my head for days.

Two references in there to two English writers…. :-) Plus two references to Greek mythology… :-)
