Or Was It?

Updated on November 17, 2011

Or Was It?

I entered the room

      (or did it enter me?)

The walls bloomed and grew

      (or maybe shrunk)

Colors receede,


Sun was shining

      (through the rain)

Vision sharpened


Maybe it was all a dream

      (or was it?)

"Back Story"

This poem is part of the collection, "Literary Nights," and the entries in this category are created exclusively from dreams or fragments thereof, as recalled upon waking.

I make no attempt to explain them, and I certainly do not claim that they make one single bit of sense. They are presented simply for amusement, and for sharing some of the strange things that come into our brains as we slumber.

    It makes me wonder, am I sitting inside or outside in, right now. Lol. I enjoyed it.

    Hi, epigramman--thanks for stopping by my pages & commenting on my hubs! Much appreciated.

    And thanks for answering my question. So---I see it's a sinister conspiriacy of inconsistency to keep us hubbers guessing! LOL

    I agree, paint pictures with words...but I am also a I do both. Unfortunately, few of my photos have anything to do with my hub topics, so when I am told that the search engines and advertisers and readers prefer pictures, I am thereby sent on a hunt for appropriate public-domain images. ::: sigh :::

    ....your writing is so unique and reminds me of you know who - lol lol - I guess it takes one to know one as they say.

    And the answer to your question: I have been getting away with 8 lines minimum but like you say every once in a while the HUB MASTERS tell me it's too short - so I add a line or two to appease the Gods ..... I think I'm lazy about adding images although my writing is not because a good writer can paint images and pictures without having to rely on You Tube and posters and other gimmicks - although it works for some people and they put a lot into it - so good for them!
