Image for the poem indomitable.


sleep hides it's face
thoughts dig in
borrowing deep
into darkened bowels
whilst dragging a weary psyche

O' dance and sing!
those songs of memories
plucked from the banks
where nostalgia percolates
and idea tendrils grow
teetering on a cusp of reality

counting stars that neon flicker
with each and every denied request
of sleep that seems ethereal
mist or vapor—
(perhaps of legend)
with ample smoke that floats
j u s t ... out of reach

fingers hard grasp of emptiness
a mind swirls
riding a painted horse
'round and 'round
and up and down

nonstop streaming
of a consciousness
that's wide awake
 while dreaming
riding this mind's
carousel of indomitable—
