Day Dreaming

When I fall asleep I encounter a dream in school.
Does this happen to you?

Do you see vivid colored fields of flowers?
Or bats flowing out of a pitch black cave?

Are you playing with your favorite football team?
Or writing an article for your favorite magazine?

Is there a steaming jacuzzi in a five star hotel?
Or a creepy manor with a spooky interior?

Do you see cookies, crackers, chips and soda?
Or apples, bananas, carrots, and juice boxes?

Can you see a palette of beautiful colors?
Or is there an empty, black, nothingness?

Do you hear birds humming in the warm summer sun?
Or coyotes howling in the cool dusk of a full moon?

And remember, any dream is worth dreaming.
