Dream a Little Dream of Me
Stories for me often start with dreams… It can be a scene though I’ve sometimes dreamt entire adventures. I have also dreamed the same thing several times but bringing about different outcomes by attempting new things within the dreams. Yes I’m weird like that.
So what adventures/tales would you write that started with a dream – say from last night or from one of last week’s, last year’s if you’re so lucky as to remember them for so long?
Or – from another perspective – what tale/adventure would you dream of living? Who would you become? A high priestess? A rogue werewolf? A different version of yourself; more daring, more patient?
After all, stories can be the stuff of dreams and inspire, lift us up in so many diverse ways.
So who/what would tell you to “Dream a little dream of me”? Share your tale.
I bought a dream catcher to capture
The elusive dreams I dream at night
For they always evaporate like the morning dew
When I wake up the next day
But the dream catcher was as useless as my memory
I could never recall what transpired behind my closed eyelids
Just that some days I would wake up with a bounce in my step
And a desire to change the world with my heroic deeds
And on others, I would try to push down a feeling of doom
Then I realized that the dreams I dreamt while sleeping didn’t matter
The dreams that matter are those which I dream while awake
Those that set me on the path to achieve my goals
And when I aspire to reach for the stars or touch the rainbow
I can at least accomplish some fraction of this lofty ambition
We need our dreams for they lay the basis
Upon which we construct the fortress of life
