For NaPoWriMo Day 14 the Prompt is: “to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things: Teacup, Hammer, Seagull, Ballet slipper, Shark, Wobbly table, Dentist, and Rowboat. I’m combining with SPF hosted by Alistair Forbes.

Teacup held in hand, she murmurs vespers,
Ballet slippers lifted, a child’s fond hopes —
A tutu twirled, spun, clouds that gleam and float.
She dreams of diving seagulls, their whispers,
Voices, sharp tongues drill; sharks with winged-flippers,
Sailors, those unafraid steering rowboats.
Hammerheads drift, they alter in remote,
Albatross’ signs of woe, slight wisps;
Reality and memories weave lost thoughts.
Wants, needs, and everything time forgotten,
Awaking to find the Albatross cawing.
As ethereal moments wake, warble —
Albatross unblinking, sailor he shoots;
He quakes and trembles within blackened boots.
