Dreams

Dreams

My dreams always end before some big climax—the revelation of what is behind the wall or who is behind the spread cape, ready to turn around and solve the mystery. Dreams are a wonderland we dive into unaware—a little surprise some part of us produces every night. A vast world composed of images real and false. Bits from our past or present scrambled up with fantastic elements perhaps remembered from our youth. Dreams where we can fly. Sinister alleys and unknown streets we wander through, at first with a false assurance that they will lead to somewhere. It is with regrets or a heartfelt “hurray!” that we awaken from these dreams—either saved  or disappointed by the awakening—our lives somehow sorted out by the weird realignment of facts and fantasy that they accomplish, like shuffled cards, rearranging our past by mixing it in with the future or with fantasy. Dreams are a surreal world we enter every night, no less real than the world we live in every day. Just different, made up of different parts of ourselves. A second chance, perhaps. Or a sorting out of problems, worries, regrets.

Prompts today are divewonderland, false, hurray, vast.

    Mine end when I’m trying to escape some awful fate, but just before I succeed 😦
    Your word processor did a good job of dividing that word: Yes, dreams usually are the mind’s way of “rear-ranging”, sifting and processing data.

        No, I’m reading it on my home PC — but now it looks different. The words ei-ther and re-alignment are divided but rearranged is in the middle of the line. Oh, well…
        Somehow in my displayed font size and screen width, I guess. One could come up with some very interesting divisions. 😉

      Sam, when I hit on the link you provide, it takes me back to my own blog. I’d like to read about your dream. In my house dream, I discover a whole underground floor to my house that I’ve forgotten is there.

          Nope. It still takes me back to mine but gives me an option of visiting felipe’s blog..whom I don’t know. To do a pingback to your blog, view your blog (not in edit mode) and copy the URL in the browser bar. Then send that url to the person you want to view your blog. Or, copy their URL and go back to your blog and hit the link button (looks like an infinity sign) and type their URL into the link space and type a word in your blog that you want to link it to. This is when you are following a prompt or want to direct someone to their blog. i.e. You could say, Written for Cee’s FOTD prompt, highlight the FOTD and go to the link button and copy her URL into the link line and your FOTD should show up as the word to link it to. Then your URL will show up in her comments as well. Whew. Perhaps this is not clear. Let me know if it works.

            Well I am just not a blogger, most of my computer knowledge is in FORTRAN, C++, Linux or even Basic,  I have never blogged and only do this to try to get my poetry in one place as I have so many poems. You are about the only person I have communicated with and for the past month I have not done much learning or posting at all.
            So let’s try this and you can pick out what you want to look at until I learn a little more~!!!
