Mag: Book

Jacek Yerka, 2011

In Fairy Tales she lived, away from the world with no friendliness
In the land of books that she loved, away from her loneliness

The "clockwork town" was her favorite companion for tea
One night, The book turned into reality

From her room, she walked upstairs,
She jumped stair in pairs
To someone's corner shelf's door that was ajar
She asked herself, did I really walk that far?

She looked around to realize
There were the pictures of her book, that were too big in size

She roamed around the enchanted jungle
She smiled, every time a clock jingled

She walked and talked with the little animals
She was sleepy, but now it felt trivial

She saw a snow white floating bed
Just like the book said

She hopped on to the bed & instantly fell asleep
Next morning will she remember that this was real & not a dream that she has seen in her sleep?

  4. Next morning will she remember that
    this was real & not a dream

    This often is a dilemma of dreamers not wanting to accept a reality

    One often wonders whether a dream is real and wanting more if it was a good dream. Very true Dee Dee. One wants to remember and relive them as often.

    1. Sometimes people live the life that they want in dreams wishing it was for real.
      Who knows when dream can turn into reality.
      Right?

  8. Echoses of Alice in Wonderland and Where the Wild Things Are.
    I especially loved this:

    "From her room, she walked upstairs,
    She jumped stair in pairs
    To someone's corner shelf's door that was ajar
    She asked herself, did I really walk that far?"
    So clever and evocative!
