This is a sevenling (or my attempt at one) for Brian’s prompt about traveling. My take on traveling is a little more abstract. A lot of the settings where my dreams take place repeat, especially if the dream is a nightmare. I’ve been having fewer nightmares over the last several months, but unfortunately they stick in my mind better than happy dreams.
Traveling through Dreamland I see
My house, which I often try to flee,
Flying away, whether or not I escape successfully.
My elementary school, where I’m
Out of my element teaching; my
High school and university, missing a test
No recognition of a place for pleasant dreams.
