    A dream I could not catch

And I woke up in an angry mood.
And swore in rude ingratitude.
This nocturne full of unconfirm,
Whose feelings made my stomach squirm.

I could not grasp the point of scene,
That dwell within the memory dream.
Yet clouds of eery feelings swell
That seemed to point a downward dwell?

It moved in shadow through my thought,
Each time I grabbed, it did abort.
The clear of it would not stand still,
I had no food, but had the bill.

It bothered me the whole night through,
And I chased it, from view to view.
It irked me but I could not pin,
This phantom feeling of a sin.

I'm sure this happened to most of you
And my question is, what did you do?

Wonderful poem, Seymour.

When a dream awakes with me from sleep
and haunts my hour of day
it takes its place within my work
as colours and shapes of clay

I must allow its voice be heard
and let it have its way
for the more I try to deny its scheme
the more it has to say.

You pose a question dear
I can understand it clear
but what to do or know
is beyond my learn and so
I say that time will move
and bring on a better mood
and the bill you pay today
will bring a better tray

Liked your poem, of course
but give me back free verse

When phantoms come around at night
Consume my head with feel and sight
I enter into real of day
And let the phantoms have their way

You do have a special way of putting things
This is one of those poems of yours that had me grinning

Well now - the only solution I see to this dilemma is... to whistle a happy tune!!

Here I thought that why we have dreamcatcher
perhaps you should by one  
I do have one
Nice poem and hopefully the dream will once return
So you can see what it was all about that got you so in rude ingratitude

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
