  • Using Your Dreams
    by Valerie Joanne Higgins

    How are your dreams?

    Do they happen when you are safely asleep?

    Something that in the morning you forget?

    Or do they shake you awake haunted?

    Not knowing why you weep?

    Fleeing from, or reaching for, something you never quite met?

    Will you lull your dreams to sleep?

    Or, like me,

    Will you twist and turn in your lucidity?

    Find that conscious edge and make it fight?

    Dragging your dream demons and angels to the light?

    There to enslave them,

    As figments of your writing or your art?

    If that is your will, then before you start,

    Before you make your sleeping and waking thoughts,

    Work as one team.

    Then know the price!

    Never again will a passing whimsy be just an idle dream.

    Valerie Joanne Higgins a fantasy artist and poet who lives in Shropshire, England.
