Wakeful Dreaming by Valormore De Plume

Untether imagination’s secret bog

ease the mind into a pleasant fog

escaping within eyes at half-mast

toward stories from childhood past.

Travel upon the bricks of yellow

laughing with a lion so mellow

soar with Pan and battle Hook

if it gets too scary close the book.

No need to drag the friends along

don’t worry if you forgot the song.

When you encounter mighty Kong

rabbit will always share his bong.

And if perchance you meet a cat

who’s head’s adorned with many hats

he may offer green eggs and spam

check the spyware for Sam I am.

Should you see a blue giraffe

it’s just forgotten how to laugh.

Give to him a hug that’s mellow

I’m sure he will turn back to yellow.

On those days when feeling old

ride a rainbow to the pot of gold

and whether you’re a boy or girl

go with Sparrow to sail the Pearl.

Gobble chocolate with a boy named Willy

although the thought of it might feel silly.

Remember why these stories fill your head

to chase away those thoughts you dread.

Down TheAbout the Book:

Tick tock says the magic clock

In a language that’s part of the soul

Get in line for the gate

You don’t want to be late

For your trip down the rabbit hole…


Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.

Lyne Beringer, Author of “Alaskan Vogue – Poetry From the Land of Ice and Shadows
