A Dream Replayed

Many of my sleep dreams do fade
Like the soaring birds in flight,
But there's one that seems replayed-

I inherit a house from who knows who.
Old furniture with many drawers fills each room.
Some are open and some slightly askew.

Vintage hankies, linens and lace, it must be a delusion.
Enthralled, so many more drawers yet to open.
My dream begins to fade, this can't be the conclusion.

Each and every time this dream fades right here.
Like a broken projector reel,
It flicks, the picture jumps and blears.

"Curiosity killed the cat" it's said,
But so many drawers not yet opened.
This dream I do wish would continue ahead.

    Connie, one of my fave here--so realistic--I do believe it's a real recurring dream--if not you fooled me!

    Yes a recurring dream many times over. I have yet to inherit any house. I wonder what to make of this dream. Thanks Craig for your comment. Much appreciated. Warm Smiles, Connie

    oh, I just saw you read my violet poem! And wow, this is a really nice one here as well. I can just imagine this kind of dream. I think I have had ones similarly themed. Where you just can't get to the end of something. Well done on this description.

    The house sounds beautiful Connie, perhaps like you it has many treasures stored in each compartment, they are to be opened one at a time in the sunlight where one can heal and enjoy the celestial happiness of love and joy, have a blessed day my friend, and thank you for stopping by xxx

    Eileen so nice to gave you stop by. I know. I would love for this dream to continue. Can you imagine what it would be like to inherit this house. I've always wonder what this dream means. Thank you for your lovely comment. Warm Smiles, Connie
