Mother Goose meets Salvador Dali

Below within the dwelling deep,
while tumbling in fitful sleep;
the rumble-hum of furnace keep;
the mouse and Cat Lord Bo-peep.

Fluttering lids and labored breath
below within the dwelling deep,
furious dreams do waken sleep
attributes of childhood’s bequeath.

Horrors rise on temporal tides
a stew of insanity bides.
Below within the dwelling deep,
the cat fiddle-screeches life’s weep.

Dali cobbles retinal creeps
the mind dittles and cows moo oon,
The nightmares ending none too soon
below within the dwelling deep.

    Deborah, very, very creative. Interesting read, that made me have to concentrate and think about what I was reading. Thank you for entering this in my contest.

    Dali is horror, having trouble combining ideology with Mother Goose. Have you read Bruno Bettelheim's Uses of Enchantment - discussion of how fairy tales allow children to come to terms with fear, esp of abandonment, death, injury, monsters, witches, death of a parent, poverty, hunger etc. Facinating....

    I once attened a exhibit of Salvadore Dali, in Florida. I was as enraptured and spell-bound by the images he created, as I am by this magnificant poem you have created. Love,Lainie

    This is SO cool. Dali definitely has a dreamlike quality to his work. I love his stuff, this poem was almost as surreal as one of his paintings. Darn good- going to faves.
