    I've read thousands (only a slight exaggeration) of poems about dreaming Michael ... but I can honestly say that this one most closely reflects exactly how my dreams are and feel. Just brilliant! Clever man! :-) x

    judging comment-

    Savory words mixed with touching thoughts,
    the metaphor is dazzling with visually stimulating word messages-

    Life is exhausting and can be draining when you lay awake and overthink or just ponder.
    Hallucinating visual masterpiece...Love this!!

    Judging comment:

    There is this crisp rawness to this piece — like fried bitter gourd — and many of us have felt this feeling described by the poet sometime in our lives, and it is raw, bitter, and unpleasant but we still need to chew on this feeling whenever it decides to stay with us.
    I personally loved certain descriptions and imagery — castaway on shores, waves rolling like a camera, memories displayed like pop-up books, images of former partners — such raw expressions. And the poem kept getting better and better as I moved on towards the end, with perfect words to describe the feeling of being lost as one is falling from great heights, and wishing to wake up to all of it as if it was just a bad dream. But it isn't, is it?
