                 dreaming in a huge field

       so immense it's overwhelming


              I’m dreaming I’m dreaming


   my dream has no beginning, no end

        no up or down

no sense of light

        no swathe of darkness


      I rise in this dream without moving

      I see within this dream without looking


                      I hear my heart pound

        like a ceremonial drumbeat

              and my blood flow

         like a river gushing over a waterfall


                       I'm back,

                                back in the field

                  right smack in the middle


            to my side

a tribe of warriors dressed in deerskin, feathers

                                     and war paint


   an endless blur of bows and arrows are aimed to the sky

             as a fiery chant permeates the dreamscape


         I look to my other side

 and see a vast army of soldiers

                  surrounded by tanks, canons and rifles


       there are strange garbled voices over intercoms,

                    I have no idea what either side is saying


    both sides are positioned toward me,

          standing in a pool of mercury and mud


both sides are angry and psyched up

            their bodies shifting back and forth

      like a trance dance ready to rush upon me


  I recognize this field is actually my soul

                     and the warriors and soldiers

                  are ready to fight over it


at this point, a transparent hand ascends from the sky

              and pulls right in front of me

 all the warriors and soldiers instantly freeze in place


             only a cool breeze hits up against me

                            as I step into the hand,

        it closes up on me like a fist

                              then throws me forward


                    casting me back to being awake


           it’s morning, I’m feeling more alive than ever,

 surviving another dream mêlée

Very vivid and punchy Jude
You took us there and back with panache and style
They say magic mushrooms can have that effect too

Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 3/19/2012
Wow Jude, this is an incredible dream scene...I want to say that you are caught in a questionable state of being...Your soul is struggling with what side to be on..whether you sympathize with the Native Americans or the white man...It's always an internal struggle when someone as yourself, (mystical)possesses an innate ability to see things that others cannot. I feel that the hand you are referring to is more than likely the Great Spirit or God and it's a guiding hand, keeping you safe until you can handle what you subconsciously see in your soul. I have had many visions of being caught up between the two's quite distressing and also so real...Glad you made it back, perhaps it was astral projection? Cannot wait for your next dream juice poetry....

Peace, light and love,

...whew!...this is a vivid synthesis of spiritual warfare and an intriguing instance of what may be seen as the hand of God lifting you from the forces that war against your soul to awaken you to a new, more bracing reality... I like the way you capture and express your dreams... good poetry... vivid imagery... and a clever characterization at the close...

May you find peace in your dreams amid the melee... and more...
