Dreams Challenge

I mine fragmented images
of nighttime forays,
grasping for a gem –

subject to trickery
impatient and unwise –

ego shields illumination
abhors vulnerability
distracts me with logic-

Still, the dreams continue
enticing a deeper dive

(Tuesdays, I borrow from Twitter @Vjknutson. Image my own)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. Oh, yes! Every single time I wake up, whether in the middle of the night or in the morning. I’m a lucid dreamer as well, always in color. They are very vivid in presentation and with emotions. I guess this is why my creativity can take me to weird places. lol πŸ™‚
