The Amazons' Offer
Dreamed 2012/6/13 by Wayan
Forty-two Amazons camp in our back
field. Mares, fires. It's a lie that they hack
A breast to ease their bowshots--easily seen,
For they sport just plumage, ash and grin.
They're on a spatiotemporal quest. How'd
They enter our time? They show me, proud--
Mount in twin caravan files, howl and ride
Full-gallop at a sister on foot: a guide
like an orchestra conductor akimbo, nude.
Parts thunderseas like a pagan god.
Valkyries flank her, whoop, leap steep--
fade and disappear! A portal, mid-air.
A long breath. Scouts burst, unghost
from void to bone, land dancer-clean.
Blue dusk. Fire-tawny singers croon
Wide sagas of explore. I long to join.
One says "We'd welcome one who'd dare!"
Shall I try? Can I leap through?
Not one ripple in the azure air.
Dive away. Would you?
NOTES IN THE MORNING
- Confident Amazons: I just read Beth Bernobich's Fox and Phoenix. Full of feisty women. Lian is confident, even arrogant; and Yun is downright bossy. The dream hints that I found their naked confidence much sexier than my own shy social caution.
- I hesitated before trying to ride along, through the invisible sky-door... and woke. They were sexy, wild, magical, free. I'm single, with few responsibilities other than the self-imposed ones of my art. So why did I pause?
- That reflects my real life. Lately I've been clinging to my little daily routine, taking no risks. Why? I'm not saying the dream makes me resolve to risk big ventures; maybe there's reason to hesitate. Or maybe not. What it does is make me notice how I've played it safe. Why? What's going on?
