Treasure Island

Patti Masterman


A Dream


Once I dreamed I awoke on a ship
In my own special room, as she swayed and dipped
I walk down the corridors, just like a queen
Touching and seeing the things in my dream
I stopped at the railing and looked at the sea
And it just as fine and as clear as could be
But storm clouds arose and the ship began to toss
I ran back to my room, completely at loss
How to find a life jacket somewhere on that boat
Something in case, just to keep me afloat
I hunted for hours; it seemed quite a search
But when I woke up, I was wearing a purse.

    Good job it wasn't the one about eating a marshmallow and not being able find the pillow!

    This actually has a lovely ethereal feel to it. You have captured an essence of the dreamstate. (Report) Reply

    Time to get off the ship, and pursue a boat of your own? Dreams seem to have a language all their own, if only we could learn it. Very good poem, and dream. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
