20 Syllable Micro-Poetry

The Chills

Deep inside a fever,
he dreamt of a cold
blind white place where
it was always winter.

  1. Yo!
    Who’s the artwork by? It’s stunning!


    1. It’s a magnified screen-grab-extract of a print by Thorsten Dittrich entitled unvisited places. I think I found it on Wikiart.


  2. A chilling piece for our times!

    1. I’m sure glad I don’t have that fever.

  3. WOW, love this!!! I might want to try the form 🙂


  4. While there has to be politics and rules to keep things running…
    I think you have described or at least I interpret a very cold place right now to be the ‘state of the world’.
    Some would even go so far as to say the next ice age is approaching.
    Too many peoples in every existing country do not have basic rights or freedoms.
    And that is very chilling to think about.


    1. An interesting interpretation, but this is really just about the odd dreams when we have a fever. 😁

      1. That’s what’s good about reading other’s writings, we get to put some of ourselves into what we read.

        I have odd dreams even when I don’t have a fever 😉


        1. Most of the time, I don’t remember my dreams. I’ve tried, even tried a dream diary once, but it’s no good – just can’t remember them unless it’s a real whopper of a nightmare.

          1. Dream dairies take up too much time – at least for me. Some I am very happy to forget. Though oddly enough I do have some repeats or related dreams. Mostly I think my dreams are just rehashed moments that my conscious mind couldn’t deal with while I was awake. I do not see them as prophetic or having any guiding lights via interpretations.
