Dreamcatcher

on

I still sleep with a dreamcatcher hanging above my bed.

For the world it is just a souvenir from a culture they are in awe with. But for us, it is the symbol of a legend we still believe in. They look at the pretty beads and feathers adorning the ring. We see the web like weaving within the wooden ring. They wonder if their bad dreams are caught in this beaded hoop. We know we are protected from bad dreams because the spider woman is looking over us.

I still sleep peacefully knowing the dreamcatcher hangs above my bed.

    I have one above my bed as well. I try to take it outside and let the wind clean out the bad dreams that are stuck every once in a while.

    me Now then when they retired in the early 2000’s they

    Remodeled Their Home as Many Retirees Do and True it was
    A Bit Overdone Perhaps As They Had Plenty of Retirement Money to Spend

    Yet My Eye Caught A Rather Large Sculpture of the Goddess of Youth Holding
    A Cup Of Life Named ‘Hebe’ and the Usual Pose That ‘Apollo’ Hmm the God of
    Poetry is Usually Seen as in Torso to Head Bust Hehe It’s True in Someways

    Word Long Form Poem too

    True Never Doubt the Power
    of Mythology As Mythologies
    Through All Of HiSToRY And
    Or HeRSToRY Have Been Known
    Felt and Sensed to Really Bring Dreams to Fruition New Now

    What Good Is Life Without A Bit of Magic Simply Life Without Magic

    Never Purely Reflecting Essence
    Yet it is the Way We Mutually and
    Consensually Share Our Human
    Realities Free Now With Wings to Be..:)
