Dream binary (a pantoum)

Trapped within the binary of a frangible dream
I ride to the skies on butterfly wings
guided by a stray, aglimmer moonbeam
the rainbow a divine ditty hums and sings

I ride to the skies on butterfly wings
bedazzled by the zillion glittering stars
the rainbow a divine ditty hums and sings
the zephyrs strum along on the guitars

bedazzled by the zillion glittering stars
floating on the cushiony, candyfloss clouds
the zephyrs strum along on the guitars
but before I can pluck a star, mist shrouds!

Floating on the cushiony, candyfloss clouds
guided by a stray, aglimmer moonbeam
before I can pluck a star, mist shrouds
I am trapped within the binary of a frangible dream.

Written for Sadje’s wdys, Eugi’s moonwashed weekly challange and David’s W3 for Aditi’s prompt.

  1. Stunning work on the Pantoum here, Punam! 💘 Wow! I love how the lines flow and cascade down smoothly especially; “Floating on the cushiony, candyfloss clouds guided by a stray, aglimmer moonbeam before I can pluck a star.” Sigh 🥰🥰

  2. Well! It only took me 20 minutes to get to the bottom of the comments! They get longer and longer each time 😀 Secondly, I want what you’re having! I felt as if I’d walked into a Beatles trip here. Love all that crazy imagery, especially the line “the zephyrs strum along on the guitars.” ❤ 🙂
