 "I'm not ready to face the light
too much to dream last night" - The Electric Prunes

 I couldn't make this stuff up:
 
her eyes were deep and far away
as if a thick fog separated us
the sky is milky pale
a dark cloud on a gray day
two ravens in a cypress tree
a cornfield held by a thread
from the moon
 
giant Buddha statues keep vigil
on the beach
raindrops fill the ocean
teeming with life
spilling over onto the land
precipitating a flood
the Great Flood
and it rains and rains
there's an iceberg in the bay
reflecting pale indifference from the sky
 
a ghost in the headlights
running from a wildfire
a cat walking on the ceiling
gangs of devils
digging graves
 
returning to the hot springs
over and over
never knowing if they are real
or just a dream
always surprised to find they are real
in my dream
surprised to find they are a dream
when I wake
they are just down the road from Carmel
I can take you there and show you
 
falling asleep while driving
trying to steer with eyes closed
bracing myself for the crash
going over the falls in a canoe
great fun
WOW! I can breathe under water
 
a vampire in Yosemite
wild and out of control
now I'm a vacuum cleaner salesman
what next?
there's no room in a hotel in San Jose
that doubles as a mental institution
I want to complain

talking chickens in the tree
collecting pieces of yarn
lost in San Francisco
my car gets hijacked
I have to present an award
to the Son of Sam
my friend Dick is bitten by a cobra
mining rocks at an Indian reservation
someone is shooting arrows at us
then I’m a lifeguard in a pool
where King Kong is swimming
Give me a break!

mud people are lying on the ground
it’s hard to keep from stepping on them
exploring underground tunnels in Alaska
bombs are dropping
I’m packing and need to evacuate
I will soon be a refugee
riding in a helicopter
leaving the scene of a lethal attack in Viet Nam
taking shelter from a tornado

decorating a Christmas tree
on a train in India where the cocaine is free
lunch with Stevie Wonder and President Obama

I'm with a man that people said was Jesus
he gave us a blessing and then left
there were fireworks afterward
on a rafting trip to a crystal cave…very exciting
kerosene in my hair
I’m doing some kind of therapy in the water
with an emotionally disturbed boy
after a while he regresses again

with a group doing a vigil for someone who is dying
we’re singing Silent Night
my friend's cat Smoky is receiving anonymous death threats

shooting my friend Sharon with a water pistol
staying at my college roommate's house where there are baby farm animals
the horse is small enough to pick up and hold in my hand

I dream the answer to my icon problem -
move the recycle bin to the other side of the desktop
very cool!
(update: it wasn't the answer!)

I saw my ex and she had a long scar as if she was cut with a knife
I'm taking my mom to see a golden temple in San Francisco...really beautiful
I want to go scuba diving but can't borrow the equipment
anyway there were sharks

now my ex is in a wheelchair
I'm walking down a path with thick fog and twisted oak branches
- straight out of Middle Earth

I was playing basketball and got attacked by a leopard
times are so bad I no longer get a paycheck
and begin stealing food
I am there for the resurrection of Christ
He looks so young

there's a lion in the house! I need to call my mom to warn her
before she comes home
there's a baby just a few months old making profound philosophical statements

there's a crystal jewel cave somewhere in the southwest I'm going to visit. I have to enter by boat or raft. It has appeared many times before in dreams

a friend is distraught because the bank lost $4000 from her account. The bank said it commonly happens

I'm able to sneak into Carlsbad Caverns after hours and explore the caverns alone... it's risky

crossing a long bridge over a waterway...sometimes the bridge dips below water level and we are driving under water

I'm being chased by a group of angry hornets
I'm apprentice to a lady plumber...she's tough
back in high school and I can't remember what rooms my classes meet in
I can't remember the combination to the lock on my locker
there is a dog wearing some kind of costume
Spike Lee and I have our faces painted

strange pictures appear on the walls of my home
hitchhiking with Ted Nugent
I'm first mate on a sailing ship in rough seas
someone stole my bike so I took someone else's
to go look for it

a work in progress...
