Teacup Dreams

Napowrimo 2018, Day 14, Today’s prompt. 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. Dreams, unlike words themselves, don’t seem to be nicely definable! At any rate, today’s prompt is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things:Teacup, Hammer, Seagull, Ballet slipper, Shark, Wobbly table, Dentist, Rowboat. I’ve chosen Teacup.

I stepped through a broken door.

Onto a wibbly wobbly wonky floor.

A cracked teacup took centre stage.

In my dream it symbolized my hidden rage.

The hairline cracks, represented bubbling frustration.

While the fractured pieces of china, signaled I was tired of manipulation.

It told of my inner turmoil, with disagreements afoot.

It told of my insecurities, as in my dream I walked barefoot.

So because of falling out, which isn’t a crime.

Now I was faced with a complicated dream at my bedtime.

  1. Wow loved the write Katie…

  2. Maybe that cup of tea or coffee at bedtime is inducing the wrong dreams. Maybe better having a G&T. Nice words.
