HYPNOPOMPIC (Word of the Day)
acrostic (READ CAPITALS)

Hypnopompic is the world in between when
mYsteries spawn bewilderment out of floating dreams
.apPearences as yet evasive scenes unforeseen
.hypNotic are the momentary visions of night dispelled
.hollOw the images and thoughts smudged in fleeting shadowdry
.....interPretations the illusive expertise of divining pieces immersed
in wizardry
..intercOnnected these migratory impulses of the subconscious mind spuMes untamed springing up along foreign coastal lines
.....Such periPheral creatures never fated to be cobwebbed by inner eyes
.......needs desIres and wishes all mingled knowing no exodus
...........a chaotic Creation dreamed up best to be blotted out by forgetfulness
