Unsettled

Unsettled

 

Always unsettling

when the dead come calling.

You may name it a nightmare,

dream, fantasy, visitation; still,

it sends the mind wandering down

uncomfortable pathways.

 

Last night a loved one came

seeking a favor –

and a teacher, reminding me

of an assignment undone.

 

This morning I awaken

wondering

what does it mean?

  3. This was great, but I generally don't like my dreams. They're disturbing and I can decipher what they mean and I don't like it. Loved your poem though. - Mosk

    1. Sometimes I can decipher them and sometimes I can't. But you're right -- disturbing is another apt description. Thank you! And sweet dreams. :-]
