A Dream Poem by Patti Masterman

A Dream

Rating: 4.6

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.

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.
