I  remember of my dreams many,

The import of some is uncanny…

A certain dream

Daylight has seen,

Reflecting my understanding.

Reaching for a book on a shelf,

Not watching out for myself…

Tripped on a chair

And fell right there,

Crying  in frustration for myself.

I should have had my cane,

Forgotten somewhere, the same…

Helped catch me in time

In another rhyme,

Thus going without it is vain!

Was I hurt? Only my pride,

Two knees and my confidence inside…

As of yet no tears

In daylight it appears,

But in dreams hard to keep them to hide.

–Jonathan Caswell

    Enter the void!! We trip and understand what we can’t fathom in dreams of jig-saw puzzles.. Only a few prices seem to fit, yet they resonate as we remember and then we wake up.. Sometimes relieved, gasping (oh boy! So glad that was a dream! Pheeeew, lucky escape! Ha ha. Enjoyed reading, Jonathan, great one.. 😊 💐
