Here’s my second post in the snippets category, which I’ve identified in an earlier post as:
Sometimes I really don’t have the time or energy to create a whole post, so snippets will suffice when I have a burning thought around which I don’t really want to build a whole post.
2014 Snippet #2 – a burning question:
Which came first, the garbage disposal or the food processor?
Please wander on over to his site, Poetry by JDA, and see what you think!
In my dream I was my current age…let’s just say “middle-aged.” Ol’ Blue Eyes was looking not too young and not too old, and he was lookin’ good. Somewhere along the line we kissed. He was a good kisser.
In the dream I expressed to Mr. Sinatra that I was concerned that his interest in me was grounded in his desire for a one night stand. I told him that wasn’t my style.
With a big display of being insulted by the insinuation, he left me and went to the airport to go back to Hollywood.
I was sad and regretful.
But, lo, he returned a few hours later, having missed his flight on purpose so that he could return to me. He insisted that he’d prove his sincerity.
So, he took me back in time to my childhood home. (Remember, this is a dream, where incredulous is the norm.) He said that in order to convince me that his interest was real, he wanted to know all about me. Hence the trip back in time. For days we observed the world of my youth.
We stood in the midst of my childhood life and laughed genuinely and felt that sense of endearment that childhood memories can conjure – where innocence and sweetness reign. And he fell deeper in love with me and I with him for his appreciation of those who I have loved.
Then I woke up, reality hitting me like an Arctic blast.
Through the morning as I mulled over what the dream might mean, I remembered a poem I wrote during the summer. I think Ol’ Blue Eyes was standing in for a brown eyed guy.
Missing you, Kissing you

…in my dreams
how is it that I’m coming apart at the seams
not from our separation
but life’s undulations
is there no end
…in my dreams
