Mind Games


I’m climbing steep grades
Gets steeper as I go up
No way to go down

Head off back of pillow…

My mind floated through
Struggles from the past // long gone
Woke to a new day

Glad dreams aren’t reality
Reruns seem real while asleep

Today is Quadrille Monday once again and Mish, at d’Verse, asked us to use the word steep as a prompt. That got me dreaming and this poem evolved in my mind! A quadrille of exactly 44 words.

  1. So glad you got the comments fixed. Waking some mornings, not a believer in “hell” as you know, I do think, however, a good torture for hell would be to put us in perpetual REM. Dream, usually aren’t pleasant, eh? (BTW, I responded to your comment.)


  2. It is interesting how so many in the “steep” prompt had a lot to do with dreams, this is at least the 8th one I remember, wonder if many of us dream of Sysiphean tasks. In any case, wishing you sweet dreams. 🙂
