Dance of Dreams

I danced
Skipping through
Slippers of dreams
Filet of scene
Seasoned
Slipping
Only occasionally
      into consciousness of a sort
Before some other
Filet stole awareness
     and condensed it
For a while

I line them up.
Pendants hung
With care,
Dreamscapes
Awash.

  4. The long "e's" here sound perfect together:

    "Slippers of dreams
    Filet of scene"

    I really, really enjoyed the second appearance of the word "filet" as well. It opened up a world of sentient segments.
