I’m sure I was dreaming. I could never afford to travel To the most beautiful island The world could provide. Yet there I was swimming In warm clear aquamarine seas. Out on the sand the view was stunning. Houses built on the sea itself, An aroma of shellfish and chicken Filled the pure air. I was hungry. But I had no money, dressed in a bathing suit. Someone called me and I was offered A plate of aromatic food. I ate it slowly, savoring delicious victuals. Then my newfound friend took me for a walk. I saw purple crabs scuttling sideways Whilst at the edge of a forest So lovely and tender, some mousedeer Were pasturing quietly in the shade. Then I realised how hot the midday sun was. And I woke on my bed, sweating. It was bliss to linger under a shower.

Dreams can be so vivid and realistic but mostly we can't remember them as they would maybe make us sad. Blessings and hugs Victor, I must say this was a blissful dream! Jennifer.

What a beautiful dream. It sure would be nice to live some place like that. The description here is lovely. But I always wondered what do these sea dwelling people do in hurricane season. Their houses and boats would be destroyed. Great job here. God Bless, JB

When you have those dreams you just want to close your eyes and be back there again. Sadly your body has other ideas and you have to get up. Tom
