Mutual Spirits

I climb through dense brambles to hide.
Light flickers to find me,
I don’t feel safe here, and run on.

I’m in a dark house and move back and back through the rooms.
I hear him asking someone if they had seen me.
I curl up tighter into my hidden place under old clothes.

I feel him closer.
I don’t see him.
I run again and find a disconnected darkness.

As I cover myself with leaves,
It all begins to fade, 
The darkness, the details, the uneasiness;

I awake, and sit up clearing the cobwebs of the dream out of my sleep.
I reach out for my husband.
He raises to his elbow and touches me.

His sleepy voice says, “Oh good, you’re here — 
I’ve been chasing after you,
And no one would tell me where you were.”

    Fantastic telling here of your dream. I am glad that upon waking he told you without knowing it that he was the one chasing you in your dream. The approach in this story is fantastic. TLee

    Thank you Terry. (TLee) This is also a true story. Every once in a while we would each have this same dream on the same night. I have no idea why I would be running from such a special man, but that is how it went. ~J~

    Two met in a dream. How unusual. How romantic. Love this one. Congrats on the selection. Love, daver

    Thank you for your comment Daver. It was romantic that we would be in the same scenario on the same night. But it was a true story. ~J~
