Nightmare Or Dream

First it seems real, then it's not She stands anchored in her spot First excited, then afraid To this place where she has strayed Standing in a field of wheat A dusty trail beneath her feet Fighting back a sense of dread From the farmhouse up ahead A single light to guide her way Should she approach, or run away Indecision clouds her mind To forge ahead, to leave behind Caught between nightmare and dream Nothing is as it may seem Is a fairyland beyond the beam Or will her muse end with a scream
Written for Tracie's "Between Nightmares and Dreams" contest

    Bob, I really liked this one. The rhyme, meter and flow just seemed to work so well for me as I read it. And, I think you caught the essence of the picture really well. Nice job.
