Whirligig Nightmare


Moments inside the guesthouse returned in nightmare form.

Askew crimson flowers pulled me back to the unhappy cage.  A furry frightened creature, sanguinary, wide-eyed, waited each night destined to relive death again and again in my dreams.

A few years back we stayed in a guesthouse surrounded by flowers. One morning we noticed a cage that the door was askew and not very steady. hubby bent to pull the furry guy out and the nightmare began, the little guy was sanguinary and ready to turn hubby into a very unhappy crimson color.

not sure if this is supposed to be a poem, this is what popped in my head.. i must say you do have very interesting DREAMS

That is fascinating. I haven't remembered any interesting dreams in quite a while.

I have very vivid dreams.
Always hoping that something doesn't trigger nightmares.

Thanks for stopping by my WP post for the prompt. I had fun with it.

I liked it . . . even if it was a tad dark . . ,

The frightening thing is that the mind may be trying to relay an important message from out there somewhere and we merely think it is a dream!

When we see the same dream again and again, it's the message to decode...interesting creature who helps to save you....something tell me - it's the pet wants to come into your life: dog or cat....just idea. :)x

Reliving death sounds more like a nightmare than a dream...
