Poem: GREEN SURFACE DREAM

Working with Cork poets – ONE WORLD POETRY COLLECTIVE. An experimental collaborative poem. This is the first draft that I am presently making into a poem film.

GREEN SURFACE DREAM

GREEN SURFACE DREAM

Green surface

I watch 

crimson streams 
underground
breach the surface 
breach the surface 
breach the surface ocean
breach the surface

I watch

snowflakes prayer brush the trees 
brush the trees

brush the trees the cloudsfull
the cloudsfull
the clouds full of water
the clouds full of water

I watch 

watch ferns uncoil 
their baby fingers
again 

and 

again 

and 

again


watch 
their baby fingers
again 

and 

again 

and 

again

ferns uncoil

the clouds full of water

I watch

raindrops tap

the constant tick of the clock
the constant tick of the clock
the tick of the clock

I watch

time streams
a device that moves fluids
dreamless the speech of trees
streams a device that moves fluids
fluids flow silken flow silken
silken 
silken 
silken sunlight revel green
green grass
revel green grass

 
the speech of trees streams fluids flow silken
flow silken 
flow silken
time streams
time streams a device that moves fluids
flow silken
flow 
flow 

flow ocean
flow ocean
ocean
fluids flow silken

I watch 
dreamless 
a misplaced dream

trees weep
dreamless 
dreamless

dreamless sleep 

dreamless breath

dreamless sleep

dreamless breath

dreamless symmetry

dreamless

sleep

breath

symmetry

moonshine
white lightning 

the tick of the clock
empty stars.
