Given Presence

Resourceful - conjuring bulk from brain brew Remorseful - predictable poetry, spirit sinking Perception - radically alters the same view Pareidolia - open gate self driven thinking Eradicate - enclosure - thwart cliche profanity Enigma - drifts in layers of conciousness Hallucinate - haunts the bridge adjoining sanity Hypothosise - solidify vapour responsiveness Fabricate - concocted charade materialised Fantasy - unreal ideas give desperate relief Establish - beyond bounds to tantalise Erroneous - concealed, reveals new belief Rampant written critters eat readers' expectations Sabre tooth tigers exude from woodgrain exuberantly Thumping words stir rainbow disco illumination With sage persuasion, topic prospers convincingly Slices of vivid visuals leave consumer inflicted Scenarios spring suddenly, scorch on impact Rage and rapture entwine, rapid zig zag ballistic Buffed poem friction, grazed reader attacked Written: 29th July 2020 Submitted for Contest: Pareidolia Poem Sponsor: Craig Cornish

This part made me weirdly and incredibly happy. I laughed "Sabre tooth tigers exude from woodgrain exuberantly Thumping words stir rainbow disco illumination " Love it!

Sometimes our mind plays tricks on us, things are not always as they appear. Nicely penned, Sigrid, best of luck in the contest. John
