At 2 a.m.
when the wind
was whispering perfect poems
into my sleep fuzzed ears,
I jumped from bed,
not quite awake
but highly motivated.

that I am but a vessel,
a vassal that holds the pen,
I proceeded to transcribe
the perfect poem.

My hand was guided
by a greater force,
My soul was on fire.

When the poem was written,
I plumped my pillow
a little higher
and lounged instead of slouched,

never doubting
that in the morning
during my daily rituals,
my Colgate White
would polish pearls
instead of teeth.

I rolled over once
and moaned.
It was all
a dream.

Oh no...not one of those dreams! How well I know those dreams of accomplishment only to awaken and discover it was but a dream. I learned a trick from a poet here, E.T. Waldron. She taught me to keep paper and pen next to my bed so that I could capture the thoughts upon awakening.Matter of fact, that's the first product/title of the suggestion! Don't let those dreams escape. They make beautiful poetry.
A warm welcome to Author's den.

Don't you just hate when that happens. But, your day writing is pretty awesome.

answer emails? . . .

Beautiful. Those silly dreams sometime disappoint us. At least you wrote the perfect poem -- even if it was in a dream. Who can argue with that?
