What Can Dreams Tell Us?


Illusion or solid?
Droplets begin their tap dance.
On my window,
Or on the lode?
Flatlands of sleep,
Or marshes of the East?

I have goose bumps of premonition
As finally I shake the dust
Of a dream riddle
And wonder –
Has the journey started
Or reached its end?

Linking this to d’Verse poets and Sarah’s invitation to write an ekphrastic poem to a selection of artwork by Lee Madgwick. See Link below:

  1. I like this, Marion. Each line for me is a metaphor on its own. A metaphorical poem. I’ll choose “Flatlands of sleep” means “boring, boring??” and so on for each.
