Aren't dreams great?
Some people say they don't have them
while others don't remember them at all
but I dream vividly every single night
and not just about women and Football.
A lot of my dreams can be really scary
like being chased by a giant Rat or Snake
or seeing a three headed alien being
and he's attacking me with a huge garden Rake.
I often dream about famous film stars
like Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Mae West,
I'm the leading actor and Hollywood heart throb
and Monroe whispers to me that I'm the best.
I often dream about children and animals
and they are usually jolly and full of fun
but I also have the occasional nightmare
when my little nephew turns into Atilla the Hun.
But we're told dreams are nothing to worry about
and it's not a sign that we are going insane
so that's really good news to me then
as last night I was Tarzan and my son was Jane!
Poet's Notes about The Poem
But some are so strange they are best left alone and are difficult to fathom out.I read somewhere we never dream in colour, well I dream often in colour.But whatever they are great for poetry!
