A. Rosario del Alma

Himeros, beside his two apotheosized intimates,

takes the maiden on an odyssey to Tarifa of Iberia.

unwinding at a diner, her eyes wander the baroque-style quarters in meditation,

an abrupt thought surfaces– clausura neuroses!

the maiden turns to Himeros to address the essential, “Alabahun, banish to the land of sin”.

dismayed, alarmed, and unvexed the intimates commence a loud wrangle,

while the contempt maiden walks out towards the Pillars of Hercules.

B. Tantalean Punishments

An oneiric emanates with Tántalos seated upon the Elysian Alps,

his eyes shifting onto the clear-lake,

discerns the majestic hypsypops rubicundus treading Adam’s ale.

tempted, he dives onto the mere,

as Zeus casts his bane, and he vanishes onto the other side of Erda.

 

this time, amused on an unknown journey in a caravan,

while shorty the ride halts, and its crowd egresses.

inquisitive, he follows the droves of people,

onto the cold sleet- barefoot, inducing the agōn, the Ταντάλειοι τιμωρίαι!

C. Bolzano’s City of Hundred Spires

the creatour finds herself with Poe’s detective,

as he lights a smoke, and hands her the scribbled map.

both leaning onto the rails of the bridge,

overlook the sun glitters and ethereal pink-cerulean skies.

in bliss, they stroll around the city of hundred spires in search of the canaries,

unearthing burghs’ parts unknown.

D. Aphḗnontas tēn Lúkeion Akadēmía

the door opens, and the creatour walks on the halls of Lyceum,

foyer full of studēns engaged in Mythopoeic legends and chatter.

a sudden abject displeasure arises,

as she glances at the groups of desultory academics and regius professors.

lust of avarice reflecting from their eyes, the essence of filius philosophorum receding,

as the fatuous and idle ones brazenly engage in baloney.

disheartened and drained, the self walks out of the academy onto the clear light,

and the oneiric crumbles.

Reminiscences of Oneiros – II

dream
Arthurian Passages from The History of The Kings of Britain – Geoffrey of Monmouth (1848)

A. Oneroi Fæder ~ Villa Valmiki, Ballua

psyche awakens in an accustom abode

(fæder), “Awaken, awaken!

village of Valmiki, Ballua calls

Ahmiyatmou spiti demands aid”

befuddled, the self rouses in realis- astounded- perceive the face of the fæder beaming.

 

B. Oneroi Innana & Dumuzid ~ Mangal Missus

Dumuzi caresses Innana in venerus,

thereupon, corralled Enkimdu gratifying goddess Innana.

reiectus, reiectus– dimensions cambiare- another fabrica arises within the oneroi!

a missus diverts Dumuzi’s attention to a Philoi- a moment of profound glare.

long-lost facies surface,

as another missus emerges- the warrior of Mars- “سانجانه ~ in nocte consilium”.

 

C. Oneroi Mōdor ~ Altera domi

cherished conforten- my gaea,

conforter!

a tranquil shift to the walls of old domi,

the matured routine of soaring up the stairs resurfaces- son of Ya’aqobh smouldering the herb of Taina, smiling- enter the seminar.

to find an Aryan guru, illuminating Sindhu.

as a hamsa reaches from behind evoking poignant gewær!

D. Yfel Hypnagogique Narcolepsies

the body shudders, uneasy aesthet.

the old hag utters his grim- casting the loud agnostic bane.

agonizing- psychasthenia provoking, the body veiled- aches.

utter perturbation- as the petrified narcolepsy alters onto an oneroi. 

resurgence– (expunged- succinct minutiae, transiently lost) missus from the warrior of Mars!

in ictu oculi – the bewildered psukhē awakens.

Reminiscences of Oneiros – I

I. The Aqua-Marinā eyed Muse

reminiscence- a bosom site, a cherished abode

my aqua marinā eyed muse,

with the sincere comfort and love in her Uranus eyes,

lets me rest my deprimere head on her læppa.

an amicable sense of peace and calmness enriches my core and soul in unison.

oh! like Mariam & Laila,

the unus here- love and understanding.

II. The Disdain of the Himeros

a white bedroom- brightly luminescent, evokes the memor

another familiar face- a fresh feeling surges from behind,

the Himeros. 

the Min-  daunting eyes; runs his lusty hands, down my gut.

i quiver- fleeting to the other fabrica of the oneiric.

an epiphany eventuates within the unconscious realm of my psukhē

the flesh aches for strācian, yet not from the escandle Himeros.

III. Calle Mayor- Anamnesis of the Sui Generis Dreamscape

Another oneroi, another intimate face- this time, of a long-forgotten shadow.

together, the duo stroll through the Calle Mayor, as old flashbacks of Madrid rejuvenates within the sui generis dreamscape.

at last, the awaited promise is contented- in the transcendental state of consciousness,

till the psyche awakens in Sindhu.

IV. Juniper Montaigne, and the Cavus of Protegere

this time, a profound oneroi- which the memor upon consciousness- expunged (succinct minutiae, transiently lost)

the visions captivate the lush-green mountains packed with junipers, orchids, and cedars.

an unusual moment unfurls- rocks rolling down, obscure humaine-figures scaling heights, rest running in anxiety.

an abrupt change occurs in the dream-vision- I find myself in a cave.

hiding, seeking asylum beneath the vast aperire of the cavus,

as slowly the dimensions of the oneroi crumbles to pieces.
