Original Poetry: Inspired by Dreams

Dreams inspire me

To reach new heights

In my creativity.

 

I hear conversations

From people I don’t know

I see their lives flow

Before me.

 

I’m taken to places

Against my will,

Yet further still,

I’m where I belong

At any given moment.

 

Though they don’t make sense,

If I take my time

To watch the story unfold

Scene by scene,

Without reason or rhyme,

Images fill my mind

And characters tell me

what I need to know,

To make my story come alive

From a broader perspective.

What inspired me to write A Journey of Faith

Inspired by dreams

Have you ever been inspired to write a story based on a recurring dream you’ve had over the past few years? To be honest with you, I have had a recurring dream of climbing, which can take on many different forms, from stairs, to ladders of all kinds, to climbing into a building, to climbing up a strange ramp that gets steeper and steeper. Although I always don’t understand what these dreams mean, or I don’t make it to top of the mountain/ladder/ramp etc., the unforgettable factor of these dreams is that I can never climb back down the same way I climbed up. I always have to keep climbing up from where I started, and find my way down another path, or reach my destination in another way.
Dreams inspired my story

After having many such dreams at odd intervals, I sat reading and chatting with someone on skype, when all of a sudden, this story idea began forming in my mind. I opened a word document and began writing. The first title I gave my book was A Mysterious Journey, then I prayed for God to lead me in the direction my story should take, and that’s how I came up with the title A Journey of Faith.
There have been times when I felt as if I were following Becca Martin as she told me her story. She always looked over my shoulder to see if I was following her. Although I made the mental climb, in my waking life, there have been times when I climb in my dreams with her, or with my family and friends.
