In a dream I have heard what I know is important wisdom but fully understanding what was said, that is my challenge.

Like a spoken secret

her whisper travels my mind

Some words I recognise

but the full stanza is code


Chipped veneer of memory

snags her fleeing tale

I fall on the prey

my claws hungry for wisdom


Alas she has gone

only a damp residue remains

Texture like glue

traps my exploring thumb


Still her whisper

stirs the winds of my mind

A teasing breeze

I long to capture, nurture


expose and understand
