Nervous in the chair
Working on the problem teeth
Look at all the pebbles

    :D Thanks all.... this is another haiku about a dream I had. I am not really fearful of dentists haha. In my dream I was at the dentist, she was working on my teeth and then displayed a tray that had lots of little pebbles. The dentist in the dream happened to be a very good friend of mine (who is not really a dentist). My interpretation of this is that the pebbles represent my worldy and selfish ways/desires. My friend is helping me release these things and rid me of their hold. :D

    Yikes, I have always been afraid of dentists so this haiku hit home, Ra! Did you see the "dentist" in the Dustin Hoffman movie "Marathon Man"? I mentioned this to my own dentist once and he looked at me in horror. Perhaps we can figure out a way to torture them as they torture us. (Just kidding, of course.) Great work! Love, Carolyn
