Dreaming, Again

I met my future self in a dream the other night.
I went to visit her. 
The moment I stepped upon the porch,
of her tiny home,
the door was opened wide
and I was greeted with warmth and love.
She was a lovely woman with an artist’s flair.
I entered her home to find quaint furnishings
where everything was neat and tidy.
There was even a comfy bed
wrapped in the latest Laura Ashley style.
It suited her.
Even her teeny bathroom felt just right.
We had a delightful visit.
I was sorry when I had to depart
for, you see,
my car was parked
in a tow-away zone after 4.
It was 4:05.
And yes, my Toyota was gone.

that is a pretty tame dream actually comparatively...the tow away zone though...nice.

I hate when reality intrudes upon a good dream.

Where was I? Was I departed? Or were we divorced?

I loved the tow-away. Just meant you got to stay longer.

I sometimes have dreams where I'm skinny again...but I've never had one where my house was clean ;-)

Even in your dreams, the tow-away zone haunts you. Guess you should start walking now! Move to the mountains and buy a cottage :)

Joy and more joy,
Susan

I'm with Pelican Joe....where was HE in all of this? ;)

Joe, maybe this tiny little house couldn't fit two, so you live in the little shed in the back yard?

Oh no! You can't kick your future self out... how could you live with yourself if you did that?!

Joe...in dreams when one is dreaming of a "house" it is representative of their self awareness. Since I am not you, but me, it makes sense that only I was in this dream. Silly, silly man...it's not always about you! ;-)

Did your future self say if the Panthers had ever improved from their dismal 2010 season?

Sucks you got towed. At least you had a good visit.

Great job!!

Wonderful poem and dream, Polly! Maybe you can go back to the dream and have the Toyota replaced with a Mercedes :-)

Perfect up until your car got towed! I never seem to remember good dreams, just the scary or disturbing ones.
