Dreamscape Poem by Brook Renwick

Dreamscape

Rating: 5.0


I dream in vivid color.
I dreamt of grim death.
The Reaper's henchmen,
were gathering the lame.

Gravity with sobering clarity.
When I slept,
I dreamt of the battles,
we endured.

I dreamt of hard labor,
of knives coming at me,
and all of my demons,
met me squarely in slumber.

By contrast my days are
mundane and simple.
I work, eat three meals
wash and think of weekends.

By contrast,
there is so much that is,
good in my life and in
each day.

'I dream in vivid color. I dreamt of grim death.' I seem to dream in black and white, but these lines seem to scream in vivid colour the song lines by Split Enz, 'I see red I see red I see red'. 'When I slept, I dreamt of caves, deep underground.' I used to do cave tours, this should be fun, not toxic dreams. Try dreaming lime stone caves.

Death, the greatest leveller. Most of us lead a mundane life. And are all happy with it. Never bother to have a look at others who are less lucky. The capacity to look at others with compassion is a gift, His Gift. Great write. Bravo! ,

By contrast, there is so much that is, good in my life and in each day. By contrast I enter my own toxic dreamscape each night. /// excellent poem penned // just love
