AfterlifeThe dead have but a single refuge. So you might say. But for them the greatest consolation is that they are no more.Afterlife by AlecBell
Where then can that refuge be? Where but in the dreams of the living? They are the refugees of the night, slipping between the shadows that our conscious moments cast.
As Freud imagined it, sleep ascends from its vaulted hind brain prison, rolling back the carpets of the past as it goes. At his arrival, the motor man stands down. These long hours will resemble those inert ages in the womb. No voluntary act will pass beyond the dark chamber of sleep. Under sleep's indifferent eye the skies of consciousness are becoming overcast. From drifting clouds of what has not been forgotten, the shapes and patterns of ghosts will emerge.
Reason laid to rest,
fancy is helpless. Restless
Truth's TriumphTreacherous Time Takes its TollTruth's Triumph by rlkirkland
Tireless Thing –
Tell us There's Tomorrow
They that treat today as totally thankless torment tread trembling to tomorrow; thinking time’s taut tether to tatter.
Truth told; trouble toils there too.
They that take time today – thoughtfully testing truths, tame their terrors;
tossing those tainted trends to taste triumph.

BOO! BMB collabapalooza 3.0yeah... it has been a long while since BMB has seen any action, and I apologize for that. but, I am jonesing for some heavy collab action, so I am running up the flag to see who salutes.
the idea here is that ALL participants submit a stanza/line/whatever for collaboration and that all participants write off each of those seeds.
if you wanna play, just reply to this journal or note me. sign up will last a week or til we get at least 10 participants, whichever comes first.
ok, i think it has been a week, and we have five (make that six now) so lets run with it! i will note you all!
