#NaPoWriMo 2018 Day Fourteen

Teapot

Teapot
whistles loudly
teacup slips from fingers
happiness turns to confusion
Prosy

NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Dream dictionaries have been around as long as people have had dreams. Interestingly, if you consult a few of them, they nearly always tend to have totally different things to say about specific objects or symbols. Dreams, unlike words themselves, don’t seem to be nicely definable! At any rate, today’s prompt is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things

Good Afternoon and welcome to day fourteen of #NaPoWriMo which I hope is not too mundane or prosy for you. This was kinda fun as I’ve never actually looked anything up in a dream dictionary before. It said if you dream of a tea kettle (or teapot) your life is too mundane or you’re taking someone for granted. And of course I went over to the thesaurus to look up mundane. It would have worked for line 5, but I like prosy. Would anyone accuse me of being prosy during #NaPoWriMo; I think that would be a nightmare. So no, dear readers, I’m not taking you for granted.

 

Sweet dream
mother makes tea
brings little girl comfort
memory fades away too fast
Suspire

  1. You can’t beat a cup of tea. I picked the same word, it’s surprising how different our approaches are, yet they both (well I hope on my behalf) give something positive and enjoyable to the reader.

    • Yes, I enjoyed your view of teacups in dreams as I was trying to imagine drinking from words. I read a few other poets who chose teacup as well. They are all quite good and unique.
