Saturday Symphony- Dream Catchers

Jude is the host of Saturday Symphony


This week, let’s use the beauty of a dream,
Or the horror of a nightmare
To share from the realm without time
And lose some of the secret magic that lies in us all.

In case you can’t hold on to a dream for long, it’s best to keep a notebook bedside so you can catch them before they float away.

And then share them for the prompt. lol

Any form of art, writing, photography and images is welcome.


Sometimes dreams are hard to remember

Enshrouded in mists of mystery and hard to decipher

Yet at other times, they are crystal clear

So clear that it’s hard to tell if it’s a memory or a dream

The scientists say they are a projection of our thoughts

The romantics say they portend of things yet to happen

Ask a mystic, and they’ll assure you it’s a message from beyond

The religious-minded consider it a sign from God

Me, I am lucky I could never remember them for long

Whatever the message or omen they carried, lost to forgetfulness

I don’t feel it’s a loss as there are more pressing matters

That keep me occupied in all my waking hours

  1. I love my dreams and rely on them. I guess there’s a bit of the mystic in me. Or I’ve read too much Jung😂

    I lost my dreams for a little while and missed them terribly. I am dreaming again, but now I’ve lost the knack of holding them. It will return with practice.
    And more sleep!😉😂💕

  2. This is beautiful, the way you have analyzed ‘dreams’. We did a whole chapter on ‘dreams’, in Psychology. For me, it is thoughts relegated to the subconscious mind, then playing out as a dream, when I rest.

  3. I remember parts and pieces usually. But have two dreams in my past that were very vivid, one after 9-11 (obviously brought on by the plane crashes) and one as a child of about 10 to 12 (no idea where it came from) and so many years later I can still remember the intense fear in both of them. Nice poem.
