My dream of failure

The night feels surreal,
in flight in my dressing gown
Swooping through backyards,
I reach to save them from loss,
but find myself falling down.

Written for the contest 'Tanka me a Dream"

    Such a dream sounds like some I have had....they seem so real, and I wake up so heartbroken and anxious that I couldn't reach them.. Well done, Tara!!

    Dreams of falling are not unusual, Tara. What were you trying to save? People or animals? Some of my best dreams have been about flying. This one sounds frightening, but it makes a great entry for the dream contest. You did a great job with the form, too. Thanks for the Soup Mail. It's great to see you back here. Best wishes for success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
