Caught Napping

Man Napping Cartoon








Like many people of a

Certain age

I take a nap

Every day,

And occasionally

I dream

But my dreams are not

Of fantastic landscapes

Or terrible encounters.

No, I dream that I am

Taking a nap.

I see myself lying

On the bed



And when I stop dreaming

It is as if I

Stepped through a door

To wake myself

Or, as happened last week,

Waking was like moving through a mist

Which fell away to reveal what passes

For the real world

Although I wonder which

Of these is

The real world.
