Dusty Poetry #5

A Dream


I suppose this poem actually requires some explanation.

All the way back in 2004, I had the weirdest dream of my life. It was largely as described above. It took place in a white foggy setting. I was walking with someone to a mutual friend’s house. I know the name of the mutual friend in real life. I do not know with whom I was walking and talking. We arrived and read a note. The dream ended with the above stated ominous warning about two men who speak those two languages. The entire dreams – from the conversation part to the note – was entirely in rhyme.

When I woke up, I felt like my brain had been hacked and I obviously remember the dream pretty vividly even today.

I do not purport to believe that the dream is actually prophetic. I suppose that it might be and that would be ominous. I might also have just eaten a bad burrito or something. In any case, this is not a regular occurrence for me. This poem today is something like a combination of personal biographical record keeping and an homage to that cool thing my brain did during my sleep one time.

If any of you have ever had a dream wherein it felt like you lost control of your own brain, I’d love to hear about it.

  1. Oftentimes God interacts with us through dreams, and of course as you say a bad burrito speaks as well. If it is of God He usually gives us an explanation immediately while at other times bits and pieces are revealed. I understand your feeling of your brain being hacked, as there are times I am dead tired in the morning as though I ran a marathon, and this is because God I believe can transport us by His spirit to where we are needed. To this day I have a few dreams and visions so vivid as though I have just seen them today even though many years have past. Stay strong in the Lord! And He will direct your path. God Bless and Keep you Always.

    15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; 16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, 17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. 18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword. (Job 33:15-18).

    1. Thank you for this reply! This is really interesting. One area of study that I plan to tackle after I get through my Genesis blog are “spiritual gifts” and they way they are presented in both the Old and New Testaments.

      1. Now your reply interests me. “Spiritual Gifts” of the old and new testament. I hope you plan on posting your findings. Stay strong and may Gods Grace be over you Always.
