Deep In The Forest


Deep, deep,


         In the forest

               In India -

She ran, we ran,

Escaping danger;






Each other ~

Deep in those

Dense woods,

So dark,

So ominous,

Frightening ~

So deep

In India.

Till finally

There materialized

A wide narrow deep

Decorated closet

Like Carnival -

Deep in the forest

           In India.

Or was it


Or China?

Or Peru?

No, it seemed that

It was deep woods

                       In India.

There she was.


In the closet ~

Too small for one

But enough for all

To rest

And wait ~

    So deep

        In India.

After all

      It was merely

             Deep in a dream ~

Like me.

It was a dream. Unusual for me to dream these days, though I dreamt I could fly when I was a child and dreamt of an unusual house later on. This time, I had overslept, but the dream of the forest in India and the strange carnival-like isolated closet where my granddaughter and I found refuge awakened me. It was vivid, colorful, a little scary ~ but more adventuresome than scary. So I ran and jotted down this poem and thought, ~ why not share it? So here it is.

Saleheen - YES, it was quite an adventure. Truthfully, I'm such a desert rat that both oceans and forests are pretty scary for me anyway. So, yes - the closet was most welcome!

But in the dream the forest seemed normal enough, almost familiar and I was so aware that it was India. That really amazed me. Fun to sort of visit even in a far-out dream!

While running through the woods, I was aware of some unspecified danger and also that my eldest grown granddaughter was with me. I'd stopped for a moment and she went on so that I lost which way she'd gone. I searched and was near giving up. So finding her in that closet was such a relief.

I guess it was about when I was waking up and aware of being in a cramped space, since I'd slept on the couch. Seemed like this closet edifice was narrow in depth too, but tall and wide, with shelves or something so that more than one person could be accommodated reclining. Don't ask how one got to the shelves! Dreams are not necessarily practical. LOL.

It was most interesting, not all unpleasant - and the colors both of the forest and the carnival-decorated closet were and still are quite vivid in my memory.

Thank you for the delightful response!

hehe Saleheen! Well - perhaps my dream-brain just ddn't consider that very nice possibility! It would have been a challenge to think of a Bangladeshi forest and there were no signs or landmarks to assist it. Perhaps it was one and I just didn't recognize it! Thanks for the gallant offer to have rescued me if I'd known! :-)

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

kirutaye - I admit that at first as I was dreaming, I felt more spooked myself. But as it progressed, even as I ran, I seemed to gain more calmness & confidence that it would turn out OK. Then the colorful closet was certainly cheerful, though puzzling. being out in the middle of nowhere. And it was so tall and wide, while being so thin in depth, I was wondering even in the dream what kept it upright. Was truly unbalanced, little more than a very thick wall! LOL

Thanks for coming by and commenting!! Always a pleasure to see you!

Aha, Saleheen! There you go! Sounds like the perfect explanation! Now I'm going to have to get out my illustrated National Geographic World Atlas and retrace my sojourne through Sundarban!

I have had a few dreams that were very vivid and I remember them well. I use to dream I could fly quite frequently when I was a child also. Most of the time I only remember twinges of them. I like the way you wrote this poem, then adding the pictures brought it alive. Lovely poem, rated up.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Actually I researched pretty extensively for just the right photos to include with the poem which were most like what my impressions of the greenery or vegetation of that forest. So the photos probably describe it better than my words would. You know how dreams are, especially of an unfamiliar dense forest. I didn't pause long enough to really study leaves or bark. I just had an impression of the denseness and green mass of it.

Remember, I'm a person who was born and lived my growing-up years where trees are scarce and those that are there don't tend to be the lush kind found in the forest of my dream. As a child I pictured heaven as a green place because green was scarce except in small areas. My environment was the opposite of forest or jungle. So my mental library is more limited when it comes to that. Ask me to describe rocks or cactus - and I can get more specific. LOL. I have lived near some woods, too, but I didn't "cut my teeth" on that kind of environment.

If you can tell anything by those pictures I found to illustrate my dream, that might help identify what place it was. That would be so thrilling to know!

No surprise with the beautiful colorful artistic style you have in your poetic voice and creations. It comes as no surprise that you would dream so vividly of a colorful forest and carnival, which so happened to be in India.

No better place to be with those colors. I am glad you awoke refreshed and smiling I bet to:0)) Hugs from the Saddle.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Thank you, Pamela! I'm fascinated that we share dreaming of flying as children! My dreams as a kid of flying became so "real" that in the dream I was declaring that I wasn't dreaming, that I really could fly! LOL. And I was always trying to escape kidnappers. It was during the kidnapping of the Charles Lindbergh baby that I started these dreams of escaping kidnappers by running and then flying. Mother's assurances that I wouldn't be a target for kidnappers did not assuage my fears. LOL. I needed to have a backup plan, I guess. hehe

Then I had a repetitive dream for years as an adult of a house. Not an ordinary house but very different. I could describe it in detail. I investigated it frequently, felt I knew it's many facets well. I haven't had that one for many years, though. It's still as vivid in my memory as those flying ones of my childhood. I dream in vivid color and sometimes am aware of scents and other kinds of sensory imagery.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ken - yes - I did awaken refreshed and smiling. I couldn't wait to write something down about it - and it happened to come out as an odd poem. Then to put it together with pictures which helped illustrate it was really fun. The video doesn't exactly describe my dream but it does seem compatible with the spirit of it. I didn't know that singer before but now I'm a fan. She has a very sweet sound and lovely imagery too.

Now perhaps Saleheen will be able to help me pinpoint where I was or at least where it might have been, in general. That would be so exciting. I must admit that I feel a certain kinship now with that part of the world which I had not felt so keenly before my dream! Thank you so much for the lovely comments, my friend!

It could be, Nellieanna, that the dream may probably be a metaphor of your relationship with you granddaughter. Determine the feelings the objects in your dream arouse in you – India, the forest, carnival, the colors, and the closet - and compare it with how you experience your relationship with her. The Carnival closet is something special, provoking amazement and also joy and peace, although cramped – just for the two of you, but obviously not really comfortable to be in for a too long period. Thus moments of amazing pleasure with her – like your visits to carnivals when you were a child. But to get there, you are not in the desert (your comfort zone), but in a forest – her world – foreign to you, somehow scary, but interesting and exotic. You sometimes loose her, just to find her again in a special and unique space. Give it some thought. Only you will be able to determine if this could be possible. But it is not a bad dream. On the contrary, it resembles a special and gratifying adventure with your granddaughter, or even with someone you consider being as close to you as she is. Lots of love and hugs from me to you.

What a dream! And you have the ability to turn your dream into a visually beautiful poem, art and photos. I wonder what the dream means, will read the comments to see if anyone has ideas.

Early this year, I dreamt of a huge white tiger, about 6 feet, walking past three huge holes on the earth, where one could easily fall into. The tiger was not menacing to me. I tried to find out what this dream meant, even googled animal totems, and received replies from friends that didn't resonate with me. Lo and behold, my nephew wrote in Facebook a few nights ago (he didn't know about my dream) that this year is the year of the Tiger,(according to Chinese astrology) starting Feb 2010 and ending in Feb 2011, and that the tiger protects one from three elements; fires, ghosts and intruders. Its amazing, I had this dream around Jan or Feb of this year and had the symbolic three dangers.

Once again, its a pleasure to experience a visually beautiful hub from our Hubpages artist and poet in residence!

That's true, Melinda, it could be any place - not necessarily even on this planet, though my sense of its location was such an integral part of this particular dream - the forest there. It was a good experience and that is what is important! But the locale was unfamiliar otherwise so it could be representative of some place I've never been before.

Thanks, sweet lady!

Martie - what an in-depth analysis! Definitely not a bad dream, and I do have and have always had a special relationship with Carla since her birth. Possi ly all of the above interpretations fit at times. The dream really did seem to depict a very pleasant situation overall. Thank you so much for the special personal insight! You're the best!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Dream On - hehe. Well, I've not had any Indian food in far too long but when I've had it, it agreed with my tummy. I love it. I do use a lot of Indian curry, plain turmeric and fresh ginger in my cooking. I had a soup having those seasonings the night before the dream. Maybe that did set it up! hehe.

My darling Carla is such a help, though I only get to see her and her two teenagers a time or two per year. We are in touch often on texting and phone. When I send my gifts for the family up there in Indiana, I can just send one box to her and she sees to it that everyone gets his/hers, which is such a help, since they live in various places in Indiana.

That carnival part makes me think of Cirque du Soleil and how much I've enjoyed it the several times George Jr. took his Dad and me to a performance for our February birthdays. So who knows - maybe that will happen again sometime. In any case- as you know - one's world is boundless when one has a sense of wonder and an imagination! Thanks so much!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

VioletSun - Martie had some really insightful ideas about the dream's possible significance. One can't help but wonder. If I happen to dream it again sometime, I'll REALLY be intrigued. I have had repetitive dreams which were very vivid like this one. I can still recall it so much and that is seldom so for average dreams for me.

Your tiger dream is fascinating and then to find a kind of interpretation which rings true is exciting. George brought back a long and lean gorgeous tiger painting from China after WWII. It hangs on the wall I face sitting at my laptop. The painting technique is lovely too.

If you do come up with an interpretation of mine, I'll be most interested! Thank you!! I feel that dreams are one's own inner sight and may tap into a bigger consciousness. But whatever they are, they can be most interesting!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

SilentReed. That is an intriguing possibility. There is a movie about going through a portal of time, but set in the same space at an earlier time. "Kate and Leopold". She's from the 21st century and he's from the 19th century in New York City. Of course, time-travel is a popular fiction theme and it's always interesting to see how the transfer is accomplished in these interpretations. One of my favorites is "Somewhere In Time". It's a really beautiful story with a gorgeous music theme and setting.

I've always felt a little loosely connected with a certain fixed time and place, though I am eager to live in the actual time or moments of time as they progress. So maybe. . . . hehe Thanks for a fun possibility or two as well as the great compliments!

What a wonderful dream! I love the ones that are so vivid they take on the guise of actual events and we can pretend, momentarily deluding ourselves, that they actually happened. Because of dreams I believe that I know what it's like to fly, or surf a 100 ft. wave, or dance with Grace Kelly. I know they were all dreams but my memories of them are as vivd and "real" as any memory of my waking life. Loved the poem Nell and what it made me think about. JR

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Yes, SilentReed. It's a bit amazing that Science Fiction predicts a time when we can communicate strictly by thought waves and when kinetic energy "does" things we think require physical effort. But, as you say - we already do those things, we may just not fully realize that, though our dreams may be illusions, but hardly more so thana most of the "real" things we perceive, which are "real" to us only as our brains and senses interpret them.

There might turn our to be more honesty and truth and purity in a thought-controlled existence! Anyway - memories are wonderful.

Hi, cynthiaalise - lovely name! ;-)

No, I've never been to India, at least not physically. We have some outstanding writers here from India, though, & some of their descriptions are so vivid, it's like visiting there.

I wonder about dreams, though -do they ever make a lot of "sense"? LOL. I wish I had time to paint the way the closet really looked in the dream; - - very similar in colors and design to the illustrations I found to include, but the proportions were so odd: wide and tall but with very little thickness.

Thank you for the comments. I peeked at your hubsite and look forward to reading some of yours.

Nice to see you jrsearam. Glad you stopped by! Like you, I feel a personal sense of having experienced things I have only experienced as dreams.

So pleased that you enjoyed this one!! Thank you!

Nellieanna, Ah, " sleep, perchance to dream".

It seems India has been a major thread in both our lives and writing recently. I cherish my dreams, they are the treasures that make sleeping worth the otherwise wasted time.

It occurs to me that your exotic forest may have been in "INDIAna", a locale foreign yet familiar to you, and one which your granddaughter could negotiate with ease, running ahead to await you in a secret and safe sanctuary.

Whatever the spark, your dream kindled a colorful flame, lovely and lush, a warm tonic to mitigate the winter's chill.

the best thing to sort this out Nellie would be to come over to india.I and my wife would love to take you round the forests of India and we can always have a nice closet made which we can attach to the car and pull along and then whenever you come to forest that seems like "YOUR" forest we will just plonk it down there gt your granddaughter over and EUREKAAAAAA you will know what the dreaaaaaaam was about!!!!!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

neeleshkulkarni, Thank you! That is definitely among the best and most practical offer so far! Well, except for the closet part. This thing was a bit massive to attach to the car, or so it seemed in the dream. But you know how deceptive dreams can be. So - - if we just get the scale right, we can make one to fit on the car. From a little distance, no one would be ble to judge the size. So there's no sense trying to be to literal about a dreamed-up carnival closet, - tight? That'll work! The forest sojourne would be lovely.
