The phone’s just rung: ‘Hi this is Rosie
you’ve been selected for a five-day
luxury cruise to the Bahamas’…

dreams, dreams, dreams

one of the few things all religions, all philosophies
are agreed on: it’s the state
between waking and sleeping.

Makes me glad I'm one of those who does dream, Michael. A good satire on the hard sell - I liked the 'Good ship Commercial Enterprise' allusion and the play on words between 'Dream' and 'beam'.

I really like this Michael. My husband almost never dreams either (so he says) and it frustrates me too! I always dream crazy stuff........I'd buy into the sales pitch here! Great poem. Really gets you thinking. Sincerely, Mary

I dream a lot, Michael, most of it is weird and wayout, and usually in some form of an embarrassing situation, but having no embarrassment, that's the wonderful thing. When dreaming I have no 'hang ups' which is amazing. I enjoyed this poem very much, it's so true to life. Sincerely Ernestine

Guess you can tell by so much of my poetry that I hold a special fascination and respect for dreams. The place between sleeping and waking is a very creative land and more poets ought to take advantage of it. This poem is really thoughtful and lovely, Michael. Raynette
