Rapid Eye Movement

Time for another Magpie Tale...




It's that tail end of a dream before waking,
when all things make sense.
The confetti of chairs
leftover from a party you attended
(you don't remember why now...but you did.)
The girl you followed
through the dead fields and the fog
(you don't remember why now...but you did.)
The chairs you know but don't understand--
The girl you know but don't recognize--
Upon waking none of it makes sense,
but, there for a flash, it did.

Nicely done.

You definitely captured the heart of this picture, the unreality/surreality that is the reality of dream. 'The girl you followed, through the dead fields and fog...' just an excellent description, this and all through.

I hate dreams like that, so vivid, yet the moment you are awake, they are gone, the meaning lost.

I imagine many will relate to your well-done Magpie.
