Fandango’s Provocative Question #86- Dreams?

is the host of Fandango Provocative Question

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

What has been the strangest, weirdest dream that you can remember? What do you think triggered that dream?


As I mentioned in my comment on the original post, I don’t remember my dreams. They just dissipate like vapor in a few seconds after waking up. But I have been reading all the responses from different bloggers and that did trigger a memory from my teen years.

I was around 16-17 and was an avid reader even then. I dreamt that my mother is not dead but has walked away from her family and now wants to meet me. There was a lot of confusion and I was looking for her in a lot of places. At one point I was at a huge railway terminal waiting for a train. Perhaps she was to arrive on it. The dream ended without us meeting each other.

I am sure it was triggered by one of the books I was reading at the time. I lost my mother to Rheumatic heart disease when she was just 26 and I was just short of turning six. At that age, the concept of death wasn’t clear to me and the realization that she was no more took many years. I think in my subconscious, I wanted her to be alive so that I could at least meet her and know her as a grown up.

Anyway that dream was a one off. It brought a huge feeling of disappointment but thankfully I didn’t dream that dream again!

  1. Aw, I’m so sorry you lost your mother at such a young age (both you AND her). Those dreams of seeking that which we know we can’t find, can be very discouraging and I’m glad you’re not bothered with it recurring. It would be lovely to meet your mother though. In my belief system you will be able to do that one day. Who knows though, right?

    1. I believe that too Melanie. Thanks for your kind thoughts. It was thought when I grew up and realized that I had lost her permanently but that’s life. One moves on and gets used to how things are. Thanks again. 💖


  2. That’s so sad, that your mother passed away so early. :/
    I think it’s rather common to dream, in why way or another, that something sad that happened to us, didn’t really happen. Or that it happened in a different, less serious way…

  3. Losing my mom when I was 43 was so hard… it had to have been ever worse being that you were so young. A dream like that would be so jarring. Anticipation to see her again and then the disappointment that you woke before it happened. I am glad it is not a reoccurring dream. (((HUGS)))

    1. Yes, it was hard. More so because I didn’t recognize the loss for what it was at that time and grieved! It took me many years to come to grips with it. I’m glad that that dream didn’t recur. Thanks my friend
