the name of the dream

sweet dreams are made of this

 

there are five, six or seven of us and we are joined by another person and he leads us into a disused factory which he has made into his own domain

 

the mini hanger-shaped building is about fifteen metres wide and thirty-five metres long and six or seven metres high and is set in an area of other disused buildings that are bigger and smaller

 

the scene, when looked at fleetingly, makes the statement "abandoned"

 

it was the sort of scene you would look at for a second and would instantly forget about once it was out of your field of vision

 

whatever part of the scene you looked at it was either a shade of black or brown and it was surrounded by overgrown brown grass, overturned and rusted water tanks and broken pallets

 

the person who had made the building his project had cleverly, almost artistically, kept it looking dilapidated from the outside by using planks of wood which had been roughly hammered into place to hide a gap in the side of the building

 

we had to wrench the wood away and squeeze through the gap sideways to get in and then the plank slotted firmly back into place when pulled back into place from the inside

 

inside, the building must have been an engineering company that used it for making goods that needed lathes that used lots of oil because there were still patches of oil-stains on the walls and on the floor

 

one-third of the length of the building had been cleaned up and was being used by our host for cooking and sleeping

 

the rest of the floor was smooth and shiny

 

out of sheer impulse i pretended to be waltzing with an imaginary woman

 

one arm was around her imaginary back and the other arm was holding her imaginary arm out in front and leading the way

 

the floor was so smooth it was possible to slide when swirling

 

musical sounds which complimented the movements came out of my mouth

 

the other men joined in the fun and now we are all dancing and singing and sliding smoothly

 

music, a subtle accompanying music, gradually replaces the sounds coming from our mouths

 

our movements became even more fluid as the music fills our conscious and we are whisked away to a place where only dreams are permitted

 

the dream becomes a timeless experience that has no description

 

then the music fades and finishes as the orchestra ends this particular melody

 

the music is ready to begin again but at that moment between when the music finishes and is about begin again i awake

 

i am completely relaxed but disappointed the dream had finished but knowing this dream is as good as it gets, for now
