Thank you Brenda. I had to go back and reread the poem…(lol). Jamie

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 20, 2020:

Nice one.

I really liked the reference to how our words are changed through translation.

Stay safe and keep writing.

Thank you Verlie.

Wow, love the stream of consciousness in this dream journal. My dream poem was so different. Actually I've been really struggling with all the prompts. But it's good practice. Good stuff.

nice post

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 01, 2020:

This was great Jamie. One or two word lines really provides quite an impact. Well done.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 01, 2020:

This was so very different, like bullets firing at random. I loved it!

Ann Carr from SW England on April 01, 2020:

I love this too, Jamie. Great to see you again. I hope all is well with you and that you're keeping safe.

This brought forth so many images just like, as bill says, glimpses into the brain. The old postcard sets the scene too.

Is this your first of 30 for poetry month? Hope so!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 01, 2020:

Love it! A random trip through your brain, rapid-fire glimpses into a reality, or altered-reality, like those old newsreels that would flicker while they played...loved it!
