Dreams, Visions and Reveries

Jingle’s Poetry Potluck Week # is already here.  This week’s theme is “Dreams, Visions, and Reveries.”


I close my eyes and

think it’s a dream,

but I am not asleep.

I watch the vision

as it unfolds on the

back of my eyelids,

Technicolor on the big screen


In horror I watch as

a fly crawls across the fixed

eye of my goat kid.

Fear rising, I force

my eyes to open

wishing this image gone.


Five days later, I

feel helpless as I

rush to this vision,

recreated in my barnyard.

I want to open my eyes

to end the nightmare,

but this time the vision is reality.

  1. A sad one Teresa..!!
    So sorry about this.. It’s scary how few of us dream before it strikes. It took me back to how I had started dreaming of signs foretelling my mom’s demise..!!

    Peace n Hugs

  2. Excellent write – I’ve been known to have this sort of thing happen, though not usually with such sad consequences.

  3. OUCH!! SCARY!!!
    Bad dreams should NEVER turn to reality! And Bad reality should ONLY turn out to be dreams!!

    Very well written, Teresa.. kept me GLUED to your poem!
