Shady Jedi Mind Tricks

Wherefrom poetry shades recall,
and the other side of yesterday
is but a dreamt hallucination,
can't see the foliage from trees'
darkly forested boundaries,
insofar as frivolous moonbeams 
agitate sun's glorified imagism 
'midst hues of baubled madness
& vaporous sentiments are replete
within day-trippers' remote motives,
shadowing delusional chicanery
of rosé-tinted Jedi mind tricks

Hey Paloma, life really does imitate art. EM waves coming from my high def TV are showing just what you wrote about in this poem. Creepy weird. Ha ha ha. Love the space age hip-trip ride. Gotta hang on tight when I go down your Alice-in-Poetland rabbit holes. Ty for the thrill ride though. Love always. RW
