Welcome Friends of This World and That,
You have landed in exactly the right place, the space where surreal poetic wonders and soft dreamy naps coexist. Why, it is indeed a Poetry Nap!
Take your shoes off, lie down, relax, and doze off to poetry of the masters woven into an extraordinary tale we call The Nature of Love.
Join us, Lady and Lord Dosis, time voyagers of the dream world, as we guide you through the fantastical cosmos.
Don't be shy. Please do climb aboard our magnificent, magnanimous, magical flying bed in the sky. You won't be alone as you recline and cuddle with some of our most treasured poets from times past, present, and future such as Pablo Neruda, Maya Angelou, Walt Whitman, Michael McClure, Mary Oliver, e e cummings, Xanaraxianblythe, Gertrude Stein, and Gary Snyder to name but a few.
You do the resting. We do the rest.
Ethereally, surreally, and really yours,
Lady & Lord Dosis
all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes
Women and men (both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain
-e e cummings
