Surreal Dream

Surreal Dream

Dressed in white
I walked barefoot
on the surface of the moon
When upon me came
a carriage and horses
in the month of June
 
The sound of hoofbeats
on gravel evoked a memory
of a long-forgotten tune
and in the distance
I saw the dish running
away with the spoon

    Your poem has a wistful sound, Christine, created by the ‘oo’ rhymes. I love the surreal thought of the dish running away with the spoon!

    I’ve always loved any poetry that includes reference to nursery rhymes…and you’ve done it surrealistically! 🙂

      Thanks Lillian 🙂 Our dreams are surreal and nonsensical when picturing them. It’s not until we break them down that we can translate them. I think the dish running away with the spoon from another nursery rhyme, was that I ate cereal before going to bed! 🤣

      Thanks Beckie! I really appreciate it ❤️
      I had the poem written and luckily found the pic on Pixabay. She wasn’t walking on the moon but she wore white and there was a horse! ☺️👍
