I Am A Daydreamer

Written for:  Poetic Asides #409
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “I Am A (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: “I Am A Toothbrush,” “I Am A Martian,” and/or “I Am A Replica X-Wing Fighter.”

Plagued by nightmares,
I must dream by day
or late in evening when
imaginations play.

Watercolors float by
some memories, some scenes
like picturing a dog dressed
as a chanteuse in green,

or tea parties with Alice,
Hatter, Hare, and Dormouse,
Lewis Carroll presiding
in a purple beach house.

My eyes might be open,
but my mind’s far away
since plagued by nightmares
I must dream by day.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
