dark dreams from poe...


Deep into that darkness peering
long I stood there, 
wondering, 
fearing, 
doubting, 
dreaming dreams 
no mortal 
ever dared 
to dream 
before.

Has any poet strung together more beautiful words about dreams than Poe? I think not. Very nice, this darkness!

I have 3 favorite poets and the top of my short list is Poe. He is one of the most imaginative, diverse talents ever. I think I need to pull out my collection of him tonight and relish in it. Thanks!

PS: I like how you play with the font, the boldness and lettering. Gives a more dramatic surreal effect coupled with the photo.

you're so right, nevine - no other has! none! yes, the darkness is beautiful!

oh, by all means, shepoet - the night is perfect for that here in delaware - well, actually, for poe, any night is perfect - but tonight, to me, especially, as it's been a poe day all day with dark overcast skies and dreary rain falling through cold air - yummmmm....perfectpoe!!!

thanks about the font thing - however, since i switched to the "new" format thing here in blogger, the sizes of the fonts is not as distinctive as the old format so i may switch back - but thanks - i like to be able to have a story within a story just by playing with the fonts themselves!

My kind of image this. Strange,silent and mystical.

But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'
Merely this and nothing more.
Oh, GYPSYWOMAN, thank you so much for the words and images. I just love it here in your world!
Much Love,
Deborah
