Curious----It's all in the titles

'Last night I dreamt'... 'a curious dream' Where 'time in slow motion' came 'at the end of the day' I was 'lost in the woods', under a 'portrait of twilight' A 'shimmer of color' was a new 'revelation', a 'friend of a summer night'. I was seeing the world behind 'rose colored glass' The world was 'so beautiful', and 'delicate as twilight' My 'task', a 'simple pleasure'...'light years' away from 'clouds' of my day No 'rain' or 'storm tantrums' to dampen my spirits, or 'ghost of the season' or reason, to worry Nor 'two worlds colliding' under 'long shadows of the moon'. I was 'locked in the shadows of time', asking curious questions " 'What if?'....'What is your name'? 'Do I know you?' "... Curious they were, with strange 'spellbound' and 'insight' I was caught by the 'wind songs' ''falling forward', 'into the wedge' Softly cradled, again... 'into the arms of midnight'

    Great job with titles, Carrie. People are telling me my poem would look more readable without the quotes around all the titles. I think that applies to all these poems and I think removing the quotes will make them seem more natural and flowing to our brains!! I think yours already has a great flow too.

    Perfect imageries, anyone would like to be in that dream, Carrie. The first poem I am enjoying after a comeback of one and half years.
