“Just like heaven…”

dreamer.

“Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light;
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
– W.B. Yeats


I didn’t notice how much my joints had forgotten how to move.

Then September came,
always September.
An Indian summer.
Do you remember?
It was Autumn then.
I passed you in the kitchen.

Hands full of wishes
Eyes full of dreams

Now I pass you only in words,
But somehow my thirst is quenched.
You know how to quell the longing in my heart.

For that, I am always grateful.

Isobel

(“In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming…”)
“The stars were right again, and what an age-old cult had failed to do by design, a band of innocent sailors had done by accident. After vigintillions of years, Great Cthulhu was loose again and ravening for delight…”
“That is not dead, which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons, even death may die.”
“Unhappy are they that hear some old god speak while he sleeps being still deep in slumber.”

“Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh
