Writing In My Sleep

For several weeks I’ve been struggling to revise a poem.  I couldn’t find a way to make the lovers connect throughout the time frame.  One night I snuggled into my pile of pillows and said aloud, “I need a way to link the lovers together.”  I relaxed, my eyes closed, and I saw myself in a workshop with myself (oh how I love the possibilities within dreams), and then all went black.  Upon waking the next morning I had the answer. Their existence was linked by the filigree design of lace.  Perhaps I’ll share the poem after a few more revisions.

Meanwhile, you might want to check out this article, “How to Solve Problems in Your Sleep (Literally)” by Justin Secor (https://medium.com/better-humans/dfb12da75a3d), and then put your brain to work while you sleep.  Let me know what you come up with.
