Poem Tryouts: Dream Symbols

09 Jun

8:18 a.m. — Atlanta

listening to the rustle of the newspaper as my brother reads it… standing up(?!)

Hello, all. I’m tossing a quick one at you. Well, I’ll be quick. You might be a bit longer. I have found a nifty site that lists thirty of the main dream symbols and writes a brief bit with each. Head over to the site, read through the list, and when one resonates, do something with it. Too vague? Nah. I have faith in you. You’ll know it when you see it. Trust me.

See you Thursday for links; Friday is dark, as I will be on the road; and Tuesday for our next prompt.

I’ll try to get back to read, but it might be spotty. I have relatives, and museums to see. Happy writing, everyone.

    I have been writing my dreams down for forty years. Fascinating insights and I am sure, unconscious healing.

    I’ve got a haibun just for you. But I’m going to post it tomorrow because it will link with the daily piece that I am posting then.

    I am fascinated with dreams, and spent a while at the site you provided. Thanks, Margo.

      It’s a fun site, isn’t it. I liked the quickness of it. Other dream sites got too involved.

        There seems to be a lot of meanings for each type of dream, which I guess, makes sense.
