Wednesday.. a Week Half Done.. 16 Years ... Did You Have a Nightmare?

"Many of our daydreams would darken into nightmares, were there a danger of their coming true!" ~ Logan Pearsall Smith

===================
One Shot Poetry..

The Dream...

Neanderthals stomp
in ever widening circles
gnarled hands clap in rhythm...
hissing stairs we climb
towering through gray skies
Me..? I am not afraid!
After all.. you are but a dream..
Really..? evil enquired..
escape the cry of a name...
sunrise hears the prayers..

Thanks for visiting my blog today.. I have had weeks of troubled sleep.. the death of a friend this past week did nothing to lessen my unrest.. Do you ever have times of restlessness...?
I searched high and low.. and even lower for a needle to make a photo of.. this is what I found.. an old needle that belonged to My Grandma Black.. she loaned it to me in 1977 to sew together some denim into a cover for a wore out couch...I can see her now telling me she needs it back.. It is a huge needle..blunt at the tip... I sewed the denim squares together with ribbon and big giant stitches.. She said plain as day she needed it back..and I still have it long after she has died.. I miss her.. I am not ashamed that I have her needle.. I am gladdened by finding it..
Hatred a slow burn hot.. hot.. hot.. as is passion!
thanks for stopping by my blog tonight.. I welcome both comments and followers..
.. have a great day!
Patsy

Sorry about the death of your friend. It's never easy. Sometimes writing/blogging truly helps

Claudia said...

some dreams can be so real..thanks for capturing yours..nice one shot! (somehow made me think of a scene out of Lord of the rings)

Cheryl said...

Sorry for your loss. So glad you have your grandmother's needle. I think she'd be quite glad you've got it. Nice N capture.

i wonder did you make that photo of your friend... it is an easy read to follow along and note the details of your day that have affected your life.... funny how the littlest of objects can be so endearing... yes, hatred is very destructive... real estate

Sorry you are having a bad week of it, pally. Still your mind when you lie down and hopefully, this too shall pass. We all go through it--it's just a matter of it passing.

Love the needle story. I'll bet your Grandma is happy you have that needle now. :)
