To figure the dream

in possession of special talents
the ability to shape reality
a mentor teaching me to understand
previously relied upon a painter's tools
palette, brush and canvas
now standing in a field
facing the mentor
he tells me act as if
the tools were in my hands
positioning the palette in my left hand
holding the brush in my right
raising it to the canvas
I close me eyes
begin to figure the dream
I exist within

Death in life

dreams of death
fear in an old house
back against the door
opening inwards
stepping forwards
to allow the door passage
walking out backwards
facing the fear within
sensing a presence at my back
glancing over the shoulder
there at my back
the black shrouded figure
life in death
death in life
waking with a start
