missed turn

October 13, 2011- Small Stones 
missed turn by  Teri H Hoover

It has been four full days of hiking the sheer, red rocks of quiet canyon country.
I woke this morning to a dream.
Hands tense on the steering wheel.
Driving the streets of my childhood town,
impeded by unrecognizable obstacles,
I miss my turn.

    Once I realized I was in a dream...I remember driving - knowing I was going to crash, and let it happen to see what would happen. I wasn't frightened... knowing it was a dream, so I just woke up. I do remember that free fall feeling though - like how you feel when riding a roller coaster!

  2. Jules- so glad to you were able to take a ride on my words. I have had dreams like that one too!
