In the wind I hear flames
And from my back porch I can see stains;
Of yellows, of reds, of oranges,
Taking my garage’s place.
Now the grass burns too
My house will leave remains so few
When this fire is through
And so I run to the second floor
Knowing this fire will take the house and more
I throw valuables out the windows and out the door
And I hope that my happiness can be restored

My fear is so deep and the fire so near

But when I look out the window there is nothing there;
No flames to burn my little house down
No fire to bring ashes to the ground
No reason for my fear and stress
No justification for this last test

This is about a dream I had.
