Grey Parade Day

Princess Dream
Bereft
Disguised in sparkling perception,
A silk dress façade, aghast residing in exception.
An island of extreme,
Pursed lips of beauty caress, in pursuit and empty.

Alone a haven, a heavenly design of distraction,
Light fractal focus scattered in the wide open expanse.

A sea shore magnificence, charred in natural erosion.
A symposium of lush peacock grandeur, an expected procession.

Glorious abundance embraced in tension
True plans, laid in reaction.
Fear bred, strict protection.
Chained to exacting critical pleading

Seemingly meritorious found and exacting,
Juxtapose a position

Flounder found on waters’ edge.
Smooth and luscious excited revision,
Planted in devised, organic suppression

Giant breaking waves promote falling fancy
Dream of freedom a far from neat idea
Built upon intuitive fear

Chequered life competing in sweatshop style decisions
A flee in the ear, a high street interstellar hard drive

Stop the wind
Hold time
Ask questions.
