Sevenling (Golden Slumbers)
Shake off dreams this early morn;
leave behind your world of fantasy;
gently emerge to that mythical riff
of reality’s beat-heat—relentless
drumming—life in allegro, pulsing,
relentless force into wakefulness.
Or, go back it bed. It’s Saturday.
Today, at dVerse Poetics, guest host, Lillian, invites us to have a FANTASTIC time, enjoy a bit of music if we wish and sip some poetry.
You may recognize the title to this poem that I’ve borrowed from the Beatles–I’ve included a YouTube video for those of you who are too young! And don’t forget Monday’s Haibun that will be open all week.
The form is a Sevenling. For info on that form, check out De’s post last Thursday.
