My Dreams

Some of them are drifting vapor, fluid pastel flavoring my tongue. When awake, they linger like nectar, or the hidden symbols of Jung. Others are more like nesting dolls, hand painted selves inside of selves, secret centers wrung in reluctant recalls. Narcotic sleep concocts misshapened shelves. Still others are Fabergé eggs, grandiloquent intricacies, ornate and refined, interior parlors absent of regs. Fantastic reservoirs are carefully designed. But most of them are made of celluloid, cinematic and impossible to avoid. Published in the first PoetrySoup anthology- 11/20

Hi Thomas. The metaphors here are striking. 'Dreams of drifting vapor.' The similes too are arresting and original: dreams "like nesting dolls." Superb. A most enjoyable read. Brian

Hello Thomas Wells, your dreams seem to be a mixture of different things. Do you remember your dreams? Just wondering. Enjoy your day my friend.

Hi Darlene, Sorry for my late reply. I just now spotted your comment. I remember most of my dreams, although sometimes I only recall an image or a feeling that the dream drew out. What about you? Do you remember dreams? Take care good friend.
