Unknown Destinations
My eyes




Dart back and forth




Beneath fluttering lids




Sleep ushers me




To unknown destinations









My mind




Floats from scene to scene:




Driving SUV’s in florid jungles




Hiking rugged mountainous cliffs




I am kindred souls




With unknown young and old









My body




Must physically awaken




But my eyelids won’t unseal




My thoughts cannot be captured




In this world of the unreal









My subconscious




Wrestles rising realities




Responsibilities summon me




Suddenly from sleep









My thoughts




Surface like cooking kernels of corn




Popping and bursting to fullness




”What day it is?”




“What time is it?”




“And what do I need to do?”














Author's Notes:
I recently fell asleep one afternoon while reading and woke up suddenly, I couldn’t remember what day or time it was or where each of my children were! Subconsciously, I knew a couple of my sons needed to be picked up (from somewhere!) which is why I think I bolted awake! It all came back to me, of course, in a couple of seconds, but it was a very strange feeling! Oh, by the way, I don't own an SUV, have never traveled to the jungle nor climbed rugged mountains! The things about which we dream! :-)

This is a great description of world of dreams and the half consciousness and confusion upon waking.

I've really enjoyed this display of talent. Excellent work!
