Every dream has its own colour,
its own sound and its own shape.
Some crash to the ground with power,
some dreams seem to just escape.
A typical dream lasts for minutes,
not hours, or days or weeks.
And I pray that I’m not in it
when across the plain a mighty dream sneaks.
You need to step on the pedal
if a dream you want to outrun.
It’s hard to know which way to go
as the dream’s mighty force blots out the sun.
I think we all should fear them,
those majestically, powerful dreams,
so you should hide – and don’t go near them,
’cause a dream might not be at all what it seems.
It’s Day 12 of NaPoWriMo 2014, and today’s prompt was about replacement poetry. At first I had a problem with this concept, to exchange a tangible noun with an intangible one, but then I happened to turn on the TV and as I zapped between channels I stumbled on the show ‘Storm Riders’. After that, it fell into place: exchange the word tornado for the word dream and voila! Although I’m starting to get annoyed with my own rhyming. Hope you enjoyed!
