A Chapter by Dave Brown

wild water


Trying to cross the thin bridge

Wild water rages beneath

They are coming, coming from behind

But a slip could cause fatal grief


Freezing cold, there is ice

The bridge seems like a trap

She starts endless screaming

I give her a backhanded slap


Now howls are haunting our ears

Like mad banshees running wild free

We have to cross the bridge now

Unstable as it may be


I push her, push her across

She slips, is swept out to sea

Before I can move I am swarmed

The mad horde is gorging on me


That suddenly wakes me

And I’m in a super sweat

I knew when I ate those pistachio nuts

It’d be something that I would regret

you have been warned
So weird. I kid you not, I over ate pistachios recent and the same thing happened. When I woke I had a tummy ache to boot. I always enjoy your stories. Never know what I'll get.

just a bit of fun
thanks for the visit
Once again, your imagination is on full blast. I was completely absorbed in your story as a story until I got to the part where it turned into a dream, but you always turn a few corners before you're done & then we find out about your dietary connection to this dream. I have a bedtime habit of crunching cashews, but it's never had an adverse effect on my dreamscape! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie
