Seagull Dreams

To see a gull means
adventure is long and longing
When white wings expand across Pacific blue skies
escape lies on the horizon
If on one leg he stands balanced on a rock
life is safe, solid is your walk, steady you go
With two orange feet planted at the surf’s ragged edge
your steadfast determination will clear a turbulent past
If he squawks or barks or laughs at the wind
abandon agenda, explore new ideas, enjoy the flow
If he rides warm currents rising on the drift
growth is a gift that comes without trying
If a powerful rouge gust blows him to the side
it is time to change your plans


Happy Saturday and welcome to Day 14 of the NaPoWriMo Challenge. Today’s challenge is is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Dream dictionaries have been around as long as people have had dreams. Interestingly, if you consult a few of them, they nearly always tend to have totally different things to say about specific objects or symbols. For the challenge, pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things:

Ballet slipper
Wobbly table
