100 / flying blind

I’m not fat,
I have a heavy heart
and a spine of steel,
and too much baggage
for overhead compartments.

I’m not lost,
I forgot my way
–everything–
except where I came from.

I’m not gold,
I pocketed glitter
on the way down
because it could have been
the sun.

I’m not falling,
and neither is the sky,
and neither are the stars.

It was a leap of faith,
but I’m not landing.

It was a leap of faith,
but I’m not crashing.

I’m not light,
but sometimes glitter
falls around me,

and it feels an awful lot
like
flying.

I had a super weird dream last night featuring all the basics (and some bizarro add-ons like abusive sushi)— but no flying or falling.

Do you fly or fall in your dreams?

    1. Nah, I pretty much just ran from it the whole time while it yelled wasaaaaaabbbbiiii.

      No flying or falling… I think that’s good, probably. Maybe. Who knows, dreams are such a mystery to me. 🙂

  1. I have had some pretty bizarre dreams lately too. I have had levitation dreams but not flying. Definitely some falling dreams…those are awful and for a while plagued me. I only have them every now and then of late. The other night I dream-pt that I met a psychic who told me I had a brain tumor and only a year to live. She said it was my time and even if I chose the route of having it removed that something else would inevitably claim my life. Too too weird. LOL

    1. Yikes! That sort of dream would terrify me, but I tend to be a little paranoid. 🙂 Even the sushi dream had me wound up. 😀

      Maybe it’s the wind causing all this crazy in our dreams?

  2. I fly in my dreams. “Hitchhiker’s Guide” tells you how to fly: just throw yourself at the ground and miss!

    I learned to do that long ago in my dreams. It’s like taking a really long jump — you just keep on going, and going, and going and don’t think about the ground. That almost sounds like a metaphor for life, now that I think about it…

  3. I spend most of my dreams thinking “this is going to make no sense when I wake up”.
    If you aren’t falling or flying, then you are gliding! A lot of birds do that- they go really high, spread their wings, and glide.

  4. When I “fly” I’m either riding a bike in the air (like 20 feet off the ground) or driving a car in the air (although, normally I drive cars through parking garages that morph into office buildings and then back again – in cars I’m always being chased).

    I have never dreamt myself flying without some sort of machine. I never fall, although sometimes in a car, I crash. I am always frightened of the height when I’m on the bike. And there is always something going on below me that has my attention.

  5. Nope, no flying here. Running, hiding, scheming, sure. Probably if I wanted nicer dreams I’d have to change quite a bit of my before bed reading material. As it is the last big nightmare involved a modern day Henry the Eighth trying to kill John and I so I invited my entire extended family over for a pot luck. We were going to feed him to death. I thought it was a good plan, but it was very much lacking in glitter.
